I always think it's appropriate to celebrate after working hard Monday through Wednesday - you're that much closer to the weekend! A great way to do that is to grab a partner or friend and take a ballroom dance class! This Ballroom Dance: Fox Trot Class is for ages 17 and up and goes from 8:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. at the Jackson School of the Arts, at 634 N. Mechanic St., Jackson. (517) 784-2389. Prices are $21/$42 couple.
