Hot Miami Nights

Valentine's Day Event 2017 

You could always default to the classic dinner and a movie this Valentine’s Day, but where’s the romance in that? Last we checked, no movie release has ever been the cause of a baby boom. This is the year to wow your boo and really show them how much you love them! What’s better than drinking, dancing, and a little amuse bouche to make them swoon?

That’s where we come in. Join us at Ballroom Dance Chicago, and we’ll get you hot and bothered with a sexy salsa lesson just in time to slow you down with a romantic rumba class.

We’ll start the night off right with hor d’ouvres and sparkling wine, the perfect aphrodisiac to set the mood. Once you’ve settled in, we’ll teach you a few suave moves, and get you dancing with your valentine like a pro. No dance experience? No problem. Romance is the only prerequisite for this class! Start there, and we’ll get you feeling like Antonio Banderas in no time.
