Midsummer Night Swing is a Lincoln Center warm weather institution. Take dance lessons and then test your new moves to the infectious rhythms of live bands under the summer sky; past performances include the Count Basie Orchestra, Margi & the Dapper Dots and David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band. Children can get into the act, too, learning their first steps from top dance teachers on special kids’ days. The music runs the gamut, with disco, jump blues, samba and tango, not to mention big-band swing and old-school salsa.
