(FREE) Dancing Under the Stars - sponsored by the Princeton Public Library

Princeton Public Library

We invite you to join us for an evening dancing under the stars in downtown Princeton this Summer!

This free event is sponsored by the Princeton Public Library with the music and vibes provided by the Central Jersey Dance Society (CJDS). The music will cover all the popular dances such as Salsa, Swing, Hustle, Cha Cha, Tango, Waltz, Bachata, and include plenty of Free Style and Line Dances. We will also take specific dance style music requests.

Once the music fills the air, the dance area in front of the Princeton Public Library (Hind's Community Plaza) becomes jammed with dancers jumping in right off the sidewalk. We have received rave reviews from those in attendance. Grab a bite or dessert at Princeton's great restaurants and stroll over for an incredible fun evening!

The Princeton summer series of dances is pioneered and managed by CJDS board members Lou Becerra (as Music and vibes provider) and Bob Bartolino (as Princeton library liaison and coordinator).
