This amazing event starts with free dance instructions from the renowned school, Dance Manhattan, and culminates in an all out dance extravaganza.

Each night of MoonDance features a different dance style accompanied by some of the best live bands in the business.

Dances are frequently attended by more than 1,000 people. “We really love coming out here and teaching both experienced dancers and people who have never taken a dance step in their entire life.” Says Elena Iannucci, owner, manager and one of the instructors of Dance Manhattan. “ I can’t count how many times someone just happens to be walking by, comes over to see what is going on, and the next thing you know they are doing the Tango.”
