Ricochet Club in Fort Myers, Florida was only place to have slow dancing.

In November 2010, the only nightclub, disco, and place outside of high school in the whole wide world to have slow dancing, the Ricochet club in Fort Myers, Florida closed it's doors for good and went up for lease. As of June 2010, it still sits vacant. The lighted "Ricochet" sign with the big glowing cowboy hat has been taken down from the building's front facade, leaving only a straight paint scar and a cowboy hat paint silhouette above it, and "For Lease" signs have been taped to it's windows. Unfortunately, that is correct, people, slow dancing now runs into a steel wall at high school graduation world wide, so all you high school students out there better really go to every single dance that comes along, and that includes Homecoming, Prom, Valentine's day dances, club dances, everything. And you better really dance with someone at every single slow song that is played! And for you guys especially, if any girl wants you to save her a slow dance, as soon as you meet up at the dance, you stay by her side at all times until the next slow song and you slow dance with her immediately! Because now with the Ricochet in Fort Myers shuttered up, once you graduate high school, that's it, slow dancing is over for you for good!

As of October 2013, the Ricochet is still up for lease. The parcel has apparently even been joined by at least a couple other parcels for lease in the K Mart plaza.

Correction for the OP; the ricochet actually closed for good in November 2009, not 2010. It is for lease by Commercial Property Specialists Inc. of Southwest Florida. Additionally, especially with the only other major club in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral metro area, the Dixie Roadhouse in Cape Coral, having switched to line dancing, and only line dancing, all 7 days a week and all 6 hours a night, something really needs to be done to bring slow dancing and smooth jazz at least back to Southwest Florida, if not the world.
