Social Dance at The Oasis

This summer, Lincoln Center extends an invitation to rejoice in the healing power of movement with a FREE Social Dance series. The summer-long celebration of reconnection and ecstatic motion is held on the city's largest outdoor dance floor, The Oasis. With a roster of programs crafted to serve every New Yorker, now anyone can find their favorite style of dance: Merengue Tipico, Bachata, Salsa, Lindy hop, Western swing, Tango, The Hustle, Freestyle, Ballroom, and more. All events begin with a quick dance tutorial before swinging into a full-blown dance party, featuring top-tier DJs and live musical bands. Whether you are losing yourself to the beat of the Silent Disco, gliding with your swing partner, slow dancing to a soul song, or getting swept up in the sway of salsa, you will always be at the heart of the action on the city’s largest outdoor dance floor. Bring friends or meet new ones when you make your first step back your best step back!
