Couples can break up the monotony and reconnect with their spouse by organizing regular quarantine date nights.
Quarantine date nights provide a welcome relief from the stress of the 24-hour news cycle and can help you feel closer to your spouse during this unprecedented time. May marks National Date Your Mate month and is the perfect time for couples to make stay-at-home dates a priority. As an added bonus, no babysitter is required for dating during the quarantine. Fred Astaire Dance Studios has some suggestions for date nights you can have from the comfort of your home.
Attend a workout class together. Sweating together during an online workout class is a great way to build healthy habits during the quarantine. Exercising can help improve mood and reduce stress and anxiety.
Have a two-person paint night. Lay out your paint supplies, download an image online, open a bottle of wine, and you are ready to get crafty at home with your spouse.
Throw a dance party. Put together a music playlist, clear the floor, and turn down the lights to recreate a nightclub atmosphere in your living room.
Dinner and a movie. After the kids are in bed, cook a fancy meal with your spouse and watch a new flick.
Take an online dance lesson. Learn some new dance moves so you can be ready to hit the dance floor when large group gatherings resume. Fred Astaire Dance Studios has an Online Lesson Platform® with more than 450 top-notch dance lessons. For the ultimate at-home dance experience, book livestreaming lessons with an International Dance Council member or one of Fred Astaire Dance Studios 2019 dance champions.
If you are looking for a good movie to watch together during your quarantine date night, here are some entertaining movies showcasing the art of dance.
“Billy Elliiot” is set in northeast England in the early 1980s and depicts the story of a young boy who discovers a love for ballet despite his father’s disapproval.
