    A few years ago, the Schweizerisches Landesmuseum had a celebrity ball in a hall with suits of armour and an exquisite backdrop of artifacts and I felt like I was dancing in a castle like a princess.

    What are some of the most memorable picturesque places you have danced at?

    Great idea for a thread! I'm pretty sure my experiences are limited compared to many here, but the Grove Park Inn and the Fairmont hotel in San Francisco were really nice experiences for me early in my dance career.

    I'm pretty sure I posted about this once before ...

    DH and I danced a tango, making tracks on a sandy beach ... on the Colorado River at the bottom of the Grand Canyon ... to a live string quartet. "Picturesque" doesn't do justice to the background scenery! (The quartet participated in the entire two-week rafting trip and gave concerts at various sites with good acoustics along the way.)

    A few things come to mind:

    1. A nice private club on Red Mountain in Birmingham (Alabama), that had a circular dance floor and windows overlooking the city. I think it's closed now, alas.

    2. An impromptu rumba with DW in the bar of a cruise ship on the Rhine.

    3. An outdoor dance at a local state park.

    In the computer room of a company, after hours. One of my partner had bought an instructionnal DVD and wanted to try the various sequences.
    The best moment was when the cleaning lady entered and saw the two of us

    I would have loved to have seen the look on the cleaning lady's face! :)
