Looking to have a fun, exciting date this weekend?  Cupid’s got you covered.  Why not go out  dancing with your partner, where you can listen to great music and get both physically and emotionally  close to each other?

Before deciding where to go to bust a move, you and your significant other should discuss what type of  experience you want to have.  If you’re looking to learn a traditional, choreographed dance, check out local classes. If you live in the Big Apple, be sure to check out Dance Manhattan, which offers group lessons  in ballroom, swing, salsa and the tango. Live on the West Coast? Check out 3rd Street  Dancing, which has a similar class schedule.

The 92nd Street Y on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is one of the city’s most dynamic activity centers. Their Harkness Dance Center offers all of the dance classics, in addition to more unique  choices such as Flamenco, Afro-Caribbean dance and tap dancing.

If you and your partner are looking for something less structured and just want to cut a rug, then make a night of it and go out dancing after dinner!  In the Chicago area? Be sure to try out Berlin, which was named as the city’s best dance club by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Habana Village in Washington D.C. is a club with great live music. They also offer dance lessons, so on an average Saturday night, skilled customers break out into merengue or the samba on the dance floor!
