If you don’t have big Valentine’s Day plans tonight, not to worry—we’ve got romance-filled reading material to keep you company. Below are a few of our favorite articles from the DM archives on couples who came together through their passion for dance, from Stella Abrera and Sascha Radetsky of American Ballet Theatre to Olivier Wevers (former Pacific Northwest Ballet principal) and his husband Lucien Postlewaite. We think that Nancy Wozny's "Gotta Dance," on what dancers have given up for their one true love, fits right in too.
