Whether you're single or have a significant other, whisk your evenings away with ballroom dancing classes. With origins across the globe, these steps are always in style.

Find Your Voice

Alright, so we know singing isn't exactly exercise, but we know once you start to belt it out, dancing is sure to follow! Don't wait for the return of "The Voice," to find your own -- take up voice lessons, karaoke or join a local choir or musical theater group. And, if you aren't ready to go public with your song and dance number, work your moves in a video game at home with friends (a little bit of Rock Band goes a long way!). Plus, your friends are bound to back you up.
