Come swing in the park and help us celebrate one of the biggest Harlem swing dance events in Colonial Park (now named Jackie Robinson Park) with the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra. The first dance at Colonial Park was in the summer of 1935, where 10,000 people came and 500 couples danced. The next week 15,000 people showed up!
Come early for the dance lesson provided by The Harlem Swing Dance Society. Come in vintage dress for the “Best Dressed” contest to win prizes!
