There's no shortage of outdoor activities in New York City in the summertime.
But, in our opinion, some of the most fun and unique opportunities to take advantage of this year are the outdoor dancing events.
Bryant Park's summer dance series begins in May, and now, Lincoln Center has announced their full lineup for their Midsummer Night Swing event.
The event takes place at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park from June 21st to July 9th where participants can take a variety of dance classes from some amazing instructors.
