As Time Out states "Midsummer Night Swing brings together the best of music and things to do outside. ... Whether your favorite dance genre is swing dancing or salsa dancing, this event has a night for you. ... Don’t be bummed if a particular night sells out—you’ll still be able to hear the music and dance the night away from outside the tent with other toe tappers in Damrosch Park."
It will be a perfect outdoor place for us to enjoy this warm season - where you can get to enjoy the cool evening breeze, admire fellow dancers, listen to great live band and maybe realize dancing outdoors under the stars is FUN!! Of course, in addition you get to meet our fellow members and if you wish you can dance/ or learn to dance - No Partner necessary!
Please dress in comfortable clothes and shoes. Bring your great attitude and smile :) Of course there will be a bag check at the venue!
Just join us as we are incredibly friendly and welcoming group.. With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members.
