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. The music runs the gamut, with disco, jump blues, samba and tango, not to mention big-band swing and old-school salsa; this summer’s lineup includes swing outfit Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks; a chance to do the hustle with Joe McGinty and the Loser’s Lounge; and Elba Ramalho performing upbeat Brazilian forró music. Kids can get into the act, too, learning their first steps from top dance teachers on special kids’ days.
