Westbury, NY (PRWEB) September 01, 2012
Dancing is an event and an activity that couples have enjoyed openly for many decades. Big Ballroom style dancing was once all the rage. It was common to be seen at the movies on the big screen, and it was still awkwardly popular as many of us were in our teens. Movies like Saturday Night Fever and Dirty Dancing showed us that dancing certainly changed but it had not disappeared.
Today one can find a wide array of dance classes being offered to individuals and couples; however, it is not too often that you see or hear about an event that is being planned or held specifically with couples in mind. Dancing as a couple is considered to be one of the most romantic activities a couple to partake in. Many even consider it a natural aphrodisiac for both men and women.
So if it is so popular why don't we see more of it? Some of the common answers I found were that people do not have time for it, it's too expensive, they feel uncomfortable dancing in front of others, they don't really know how to dance, and there are not many places that present them with the opportunity to do so.
Well Long Island couples, that last excuse is surely no longer a valid one and either are some of the others thanks to the Viana Hotel and Spa in Westbury, NY. On Thursday, November 15th 2012 from 7:00PM - 11:00PM the Viana Hotel and Spa will be hosting a special event with dinner dancing for couples. The cost per person is set at $29.95 per person (plus tax and gratuity), which includes a delightful dinner to include an appetizer, sorbet, entree, desert, soft drinks, coffee and tea, which will be prepared by the professional chefs of the Viana and Marco Polo's Restaurant. In addition, there will be a cash bar for alcoholic drinks. The event will be held in the Viana's Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 40 couples.
Of course the evening also includes the live music being performed by Coloured Rain Music. Band Leader, Marty Cohen describes their genre and style of music as Sinatra Era, R&B Motown, Broadway and soft Pop Rock. He compares his female band member's voice to Diana Ross and Whitney Houston and his voice to that of Frank Sinatra. Marty and his band have been performing at a wide array of Country Clubs throughout Long Island and New York City for over 25 years off and on. This event is part of their resurgence and the demand for live music and dancing intended for couples. According to Marty he and the band attract a crowd in the age group of 40 and up; however, he says it is open to all.
When the Viana Hotel and Spa's General Manager, Michael Papierno was asked why the Hotel will be hosting such and event and how he feels about it, he replied, "The Viana Hotel and Spa has always been a couples orientated Hotel and destination. Many stay with us to enjoy romantic getaways and retreats. We offer something out of the ordinary to our guests and this event is really just reinforcing our commitment in offering couples an alternative to the ordinary hotel's across Long Island. We want to continue to offer our unique accommodations, services and amenities and we want couples to experience all there is we have to offer. It is our hopes many will take advantage of this unique event and want to come back for other events and accommodations." The Hotel will be offering a special discounted rate of $169.00 (plus applicable taxes) for guests that may want to stay the evening. While there, also consider taking advantage of the Inn's Spa services.
