About The Program
It doesn’t matter if you've got two left feet or can shake your groove thing with the best of them, the new summer social dance series at Gray’s Lake Park called “Dancing at the Lake” has a little something for everyone.
Every Thursday night, starting June 6 come out and learn to dance social dances like salsa, swing, line dancing or contra dancing. Lessons start on the Overlook Terrace at 7:30 and the dancing begins at 8:00.Each week (June – August 22 ) will feature a different kind of dancing and music.
Dancing is for everyone from beginners to more experienced dancers. No partner needed so come alone or bring a friend. Meet local people of all shapes, sizes, spots and stripes to have a great time dancing. Not only is it fun, but it’s a great way to burn calories! Researchers reported that social dancing helps to:
• Reduce stress
• Increase energy
• Improve strength
• Increase muscle tone and coordination
