Great Date #10: You Can Dance (If You Want To)
Whether you prefer East Coast or West Coast swing, country two-step, the fox-trot, or the hustle, Just Dance 5678’s one-hour sampler class ($15) will have you and your significant other cutting a rug like a Dancing with the Stars contestant in no time. “It opens up this whole other world,” says Diane Kurtz, the studio’s co-owner. “You’re not just parents or grandparents. It’s one night a week you can go out and have fun.” The class is held at various venues throughout Orange County (as well as in Fishkill in Dutchess County). And it’s not just for couples. The studio’s singles events — held twice a month in Middletown — have an impressive track record for sparking the flames of love. “We’ve had five marriages in three years, of people who met at our class,” Kurtz says. After honing your skills, hoof it down to the Elephant Bar at Schlesinger’s Steakhouse in New Windsor and dance the night away.
