Lincoln Center Announces Midsummer Night Swing 2015, June 23-July 11

The 27th season of New York’s greatest outdoor dance party – Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing – takes over the open-air ballroom in Damrosch Park (West 62nd Street between Columbus & Amsterdam) from Tuesday, June 23 through Saturday, July 11.  Midsummer Night Swing will bring together people of all ages, at every skill level, and from diverse social and cultural backgrounds for 15 evenings of social dance.  Dance genres presented this summer include swing, mambo, tango, hustle, salsa, disco, blues, Lindy hop, waacking (similar to vogue-ing), and jitterbug. The bands come from across the country and around the world to play for the most demanding and appreciative audiences they’ll ever play for – New Yorkers. “For the fifth year in a row, Macy’s is proud to serve as a sponsor of Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing,” says Patti Lee, District Vice President and General Manager for Macy's Herald Square.  “Each year thousands of locals and tourists fill the park just to dance under the stars, against the New York City skyline.  Midsummer Night Swing is an anticipated New York tradition and it would not be summer without it.” For more information, visit http://midsummernightswing.org/.
