Old Town Ballroom
Although the instructors at Old Town Ballroom are happy to teach traditional waltzes and seductive tangos to couples, they also specialize in more unconventional styles. Belly-dance imparts the fine art of hip undulation and of strapping tap shoes to one’s stomach, and Korean hip-hop fuses American b-boying with martial-arts-inspired choreography. Group and private lessons are available, allowing guests to pick their desired level of attention from the instructor. The staff also rents out its airy 3,000-square-foot space for parties. Renovated in 2011, the performance space is anchored by light wood floors and flanked by a lounge area. Up to 200 people can celebrate with a night of dancing, billiards, or converting leotards into giant slingshots.
