We believe that dancing makes anything better: a bad date tolerable, and a good one, amazing. In the best interest of your romantic life, we have put together a few of the best social dancing nights in the city, where you and your partner can go, take a try at dancing, and if nothing else, just get a little woozy.

Kizomba

Kizomba is a rather intimate Angolan dance form involving a lot of swaying of the hips. House of W.O.W, a fitness studio in Bandra, also conducts Kizomba socials, where they begin with a half an hour introduction to the dance form. After that the social begins with the dance, and the alcohol being poured, for a cost of approx INR 150 again for a glass of wine.

Salsa

Salsa is always fun, even when we aren’t talking about the food. Shiro holds salsa {and other latin music} nights every Wednesday post 10.30pm. Everything from cha cha to samba and ramba are danced to here. Again, a teacher would be there to assist you if you’re a novice. Dress up smartly here, ladies, because on Wednesdays, they wear heels.

Rock N’ Roll

Elvis Presley was a fan of the jive, and if your date is too, make your way to Kaitlyn’s Beer Garden in Bandra every Tuesday. They host their weekly Rock n’ roll night here, starting at 9pm. While there are instructors to guide you, you know what they say, no one can teach you how to rock n roll.

There is no entry charge.

Transport yourself and your date back to the era of classic New York style dates, with a bar, a whisky sour and a whole night of dancing to swing jazz music on Lindy Hop. Tonic in Mahalaxmi hosts a bunch of Lindy Hop Swing Nights a month, every fortnight on Sundays. If you and your date are afraid of being the only beginners, you can go an hour prior to the main event, and learn a few basics steps from the instructors there. The dance form is very energetic and oodles of fun too. There is a cover charge of INR 300.

#LBBTip: Tonic is closed on Mondays.

Keep yourself posted about these nights by following the Facebook page.
