The Vanderbilts popular summer dances begin again on Thursday, June 29 and continue most Thursdays through August 31st. The events are held in the Museums Celebration Tent next to the Vanderbilt Mansion, overlooking Northport Bay, rain or shine.
Singles, couples and groups of friends who have attended the dances over the past four years say these Thursday night events are delightful and great fun. The evenings often draw between 80 and 100 people. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and beverages.
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).
Co-produced by the Vanderbilt and C & D Productions, Inc. Ticket prices to be announced.
