Dancing with the Stars
has demonstrated just how sexy ballroom dancing can be. It's still plenty romantic to have an excuse to hold your partner and whirl around the floor if you're a beginner, and there are plenty of lessons and clubs where you can dance the tango, waltz, salsa, foxtrot, swing and more.
For a truly retro Fred and Ginger experience, get dolled up and try the Sky Room in Long Beach
For a more casual experience, Joe's Great American Bar & Grill in Burbank
has swing dancing every Tuesday and a variety of dance styles and other live music on other days.
