Popular Summer Events Begin Again on June 25, 2015
Come dance with us! The Vanderbilt’s Mid-Summer Night Dances, held most Thursday evenings, have become one of the most popular events on the museum’s calendar. The dances begin again on June 25 and run through September 3.
Held in the Celebration Tent overlooking Northport Bay, the dances (with a deejay) often draw between 90 and 120 people. Singles, couples and groups of friends have said they “love” the dances and have a “great time.”
Each week, professional instructors teach a different dance step, followed by dancing of all types (swing, ballroom, rumba, disco, among others) and light dinner fare from 51 Broadway Caterers.
On opening night, June 25, Alfred Peña of Rhythmology, winner of the 2012 World Latin Dance Cup, will teach bachata lessons.
