Bring Dance into your Vacation Plans
Maybe you already have an awesome vacation planned. There’s no reason you can’t bring dance to your vacation, no matter where you’re headed! Wondering how you can incorporate dance into your vacation? Here are some of our favorite ideas.
Headed aboard on a cruise ship? Most cruises have nightclubs where you can practice your dance skills with or without your partner.
If you’re staying in a resort, check to see if they have a fitness schedule. They will often offer fitness classes where you can dance while you work out, which burns mega calories and is a lot of fun!
Hit Up A Local Club
Nightclubs aren’t isolated to cruise ships. Chances are, you can find a dance nightclub, wherever you are! Look on Yelp or Tripadvisor for reviews and to find one near your hotel. It’s a great way to meet locals too if you’re traveling!
Wherever you’re headed for your next vacation, make sure to bring a little dance with you and turn it into a dance vacation! It will be all the more memorable and a lot of fun!
