Barefoot Dancing brings performing arts troupes to Van Cortlandt Park to engage the audience in traditional and authentic forms of ethnic dance and music. While demonstrating and teaching the art forms, the artists will also explain the historical and cultural roots of each style. 

It’s common for families to spread a blanket and enjoy a picnic during the event.

Shoes are optional.
