Where: The Hollywood Ballroom at 2126 Industrial Parkway in Silver Spring.
When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday
Why: For anyone who has seen Julie Andrews (Maria) and Christopher Plummer (Captain von Trapp) waltz in The Sound of Music, this is an obvious date choice. The Hollywood Ballroom gives a one-hour Viennese waltz lesson that is followed by open dance time in a 7,200-square- foot hall. Plenty of time to sweep somebody off his or her feet. Alternatively, if you haven't seen the movie, a cozy night at home watching it could be in order.
