Date Night: Dinner and Dancing
Restaurants in the West Roxbury and Roslindale Areas
Are you wondering if your dance partner will be as enthusiastic
as you are about learning to dance? Do what so many of
our students do; just add some delicious food and make an evening
Dance class night becomes Date Night with your spouse, your sweetie,
or your best friend. There are some wonderful unique and affordable
restaurants, cafes, dessert places and coffeehouses within five
minutes of our Roslindale and West Roxbury dance studios. Memorable
experiences need to be scheduled into our busy lives, so treat
yourself and your favorite dance partner to an evening of dinner
and dancing (or dessert and dancing) you'll both look forward
One of our students sent us this email when they were signing
up for an intermediate dance class:
"My husband and I are having a blast
learning how to dance; thank you for making our Monday eves so
special and lots of fun! Don't tell him I said so, but it's added
a lot of spice to our marriage! Yahooooooo!"
