For a reasonably-priced and fun night out of dancing to live music, try the Midsummer Night Swing events at Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park.
The 2017 dates are Tuesdays – Saturdays, June 27th through July 15th. The style of music and dance varies each night. There is a group dance lesson at the beginning of the evening.
The dance floor opens at 6:00 p.m., the group dance lesson is 6:30 to 7:15, and live music sets are usually 7:30 – 8:30 and 9:00 – 10:00.
Dance floor tickets are $17 per person when purchased in advance or $20 on the day of the event.
There’s a barbeque stand available for food and beer, wine, champagne, soda, and water are also available for purchase.
Note: Bags and purses are not allowed on the dance floor. It’s best to leave them at home, although there is a $3 bag check available.
