Bryant Park Dance Class

Bryant Park Dance Class

Bryant Park is, in my opinion, New York’s most civilized park. On any given day you can walk barefoot in well-maintained, clean grass, read under the trees, listen to live music and grab a decent bite. The programming team does a great job at keeping a variety of activities on the calendar.

This Saturday June 1, if you have the time, you can enjoy a dance lesson, 10:00am – 11:00am, on the lawn. Classes are FREE and led by former and current members of the internationally renowned modern dance company, Limon Dance
Open to all levels and ages.Good way to get the day started!
