Singles, couples and groups of friends who have attended the Vanderbilt’s Mid-Summer Night dances over the past four years say these Thursday night events are delightful and great fun.

This summer’s dances begin June 30 and are held on most Thursdays through September 8.

Love to Dance in the Warm Night Air? Want to Learn New Steps?

Held in the Celebration Tent overlooking Northport Bay, these dances often draw between 80 and 100 people.

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.
