It’s time to dust off your dancing shoes — the 24th season of Lincoln Center’s wildly-popular Midsummer Night Swing starts tomorrow evening.
If you’re not familiar with it, Midsummer Night Swing is one of New York City’s signature summer events, with 2 1/2 weeks of outdoor music and dancing at Lincoln Center.
The full schedule of live-music and bands is available at midsummernightswing.org.
Tickets run $17/night ($34/couple). If you really want to strut your stuff, you can purchase a “Swing Pass” and save some money.
Unless otherwise noted, each night starts with a group dance lesson from 6:30 – 7:15 pm (the dance floor opens at 6:00 if you want to warm up). After a quick break, there are two sets music and dancing; from 7:30 – 8:30 and 9:00 – 10:00.
All events take place in Damrosch Park, which is located on West 62nd, between Columbus & Amsterdam.
Full details are available on the event’s general information page.
This is a great annual Upper West Side event that’s open to all levels of dancers. Whether you’re channeling Fred & Ginger or just a rookie on the dance floor, it’s definitely checking out. Even if you don’t dance, consider it a prime spot for people-watching.
