Many couples book their time at a fancy dinner or to see a play, but don’t forget that our city has plenty of alternative venues to celebrate this holiday without the romance or commercialism.

Most studios offer beginner courses and beginner-friendly sessions to help dancers of all skill levels have fun and improve on their moves.
