Dancing Night

Love to dance in the warm night air? Want to learn new steps? Singles, couples and groups of friends who have attended the Vanderbilt’s Mid-Summer Night dances over the past four years say these Thursday events are delightful and great fun.

Dances start at 6:30 with professional instructors teaching the featured dance step for 30 minutes, followed by a deejay playing music for dancing of all types (swing, ballroom, rumba and disco, among others). Evenings include a light buffet dinner from Deli 51 Caterers. The dances are co-produced by the Vanderbilt and C & D Productions, Inc.

Tickets: $25 pre-purchase on-line, $30 at the door. Season tickets are $180 (for the nine dances).
