Darien's Lanphier Day Spa & Salon is partnering with Dance With Me Stamford to provide massage and other relaxing therapies at the "Mambo, Massage & Merlot" ballroom dancing party on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

A group class will take place at 7:40 p.m., followed by the party from 8:30 to 10 p.m. The public is invited to the event, which will take place at Dance With Me Stamford, 20 Summer St., fifth floor, Stamford. Admission is $15 per person and includes ballroom dancing, chair massage, wine and refreshments.
