Passionate couples dance for Valentine's Day fitness

Dance lessons may be the answer to your search for the perfect Valentine's Day gift. After all, dancing is all about passion as well as just plain fun. Show your partner how much you'd love dancing the night away with them by investing in couples dance lessons.

And if you're looking for a healthier Valentine's Day celebration than the typical box of candy and calorie-laden dinner, remember that dancing has become a popular way of getting active and achieving fitness. Dancing offers both physical and mental benefits, including better mood and greater self esteem, better weight management, better cardiovascular functioning, increased muscle strength and endurance, stronger bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis, and improved balance, coordination and flexibility.

Many studios, such as Let's Dance Sugar Land, offer pay-as-you-go lessons as well as contracts and are willing to tailor instruction to suit your needs. With so many dance styles, you can learn the fiery and passionate ballroom dances, the sensual Latin dances, the fun and exciting Country and Western dances, or all of them if you're so inclined. Some studios are offering Valentine's Day specials such as the Valentine's Day Lap Dance routine at Inner Me Fitness. The Houston Dance Factory lays claim to classes that are more affordable than other facilities and was voted "Best Dance Studio in the City" by the Houston Press in 2012.

If you ever watch Dancing with the Stars, you'll surely be inspired by the graceful moves the non-professional dancers can accomplish in just a few short weeks. Learning some of these moves with your Valentine can be a unique and romantic Valentine's Day gift.
