Dancing til Dusk 2023 Summer Schedule

Grab your friends, kids, neighbors or significant other and get ready for our annual Dancing ‘til Dusk events. Seattle Parks and Recreation and partners will be featuring 14 glorious nights of FREE dancing outdoors in Downtown Parks starting in July (see full schedule below).

The first hour is a beginning dance lesson; no experience needed! We rotate partners, but if you prefer not to, bring a partner to the lesson.

2023 marks our 16th year of Dancing til Dusk! More information on lessons and bands available here.
