If summer has you feeling like dancing, you’re in luck because you can enjoy free dance lessons in Seattle parks this summer!

Back for another year, Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting Dancing ‘til Dusk for 17 evenings this summer.

The lessons take place at parks across Seattle, and begins with a dance lesson for the first hour. No experience is needed but keep in mind the class rotates partners. If you’d prefer not to, you can bring a partner to the lesson.
