Dance is the hidden language of the soul, of the body. Martha Graham

Dance certainly revs the mind, body and soul. Has your love expressed interest in learning the waltz, salsa, swing, tango, etc.? Dance studios often exist in even small towns, offering group classes for as littleas $15-20/class (with $10-$15 to participate with a partner). Costs decrease with multiple classes (i.e.3-4, $45-$55). Most schools offer online gift cards, so you’re still good to go in presenting your Valentine’s Day gift on the day. Just insert the gift card in a lovely card or attach to flowers or similar.
