Dance under the stars

Fancy wrapping up the evening with some quality one-on-one time with your other half?

The kids are in bed. It’s been a long day and now you want to do something nice for you and your partner. Maybe a romantic, slow dance to your favourite ballad, or something very Marvin Gaye to get you going? Whatever your style of dancing together, here’s a few tips to get it right.

Where to dance?

Maybe you have a balcony, terrace or garden? Or you prefer the sitting room; each space has it’s own atmosphere and of course, pros and cons. If you guys want to dance to something lively, and you need more space, then maybe the balcony isn’t the spot! Or if you want privacy and to avoid nosy neighbours, then maybe stay indoors…

Set the scene

Nothing wrong with a few fragrant candles burning with the lights dimmed down to set the mood. Or, you might not give a hoot about being all romantic and just want to have a good dance-off and ‘get it all out of your system‘ frantic dance together! Each to their own – no judgment here.

Dance like Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.
