Midsummer Night Swing 2018, the fabulous annual three-week outdoor dance festival at Lincoln Center with live dance bands and FREE dance instruction, begins this week.
As always, there’s a star studded roster of dance bands including big band swing, honky tonk, blues, salsa, funk, calypso, tango and Cuban son, and a Saturday afternoon dance for kids.
And as always, Midsummer Night Swing ends with blockbuster Big Band sounds of the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra, and there’s also a Saturday afternoon program just for kids and families.
Get those dance shoes on!
Midsummer Night Swing 2018 is June 26th to July 14th..

And, you can share a multi-admission pass with friends. Six admissions is six admissions, all for you, or to share.
New this year is dance floor seating for an extra fee.
Each evening begins with a FREE dance lesson from one of the top instructors in town, teaching you the moves to use later that night for what the band is playing.
Those who know NYCOTC editor Evelyn Kanter know I’m a swing dancer, so you can expect to find me at Midsummer Night Swing on several nights, dancing the night away.
See you on the dance floor!
