We danced, we laughed, we made new friends, and some of us even got soaked! Despite some cool rain, the dance floor was hot all week, and we had a blast learning some new dance steps from our fantastic teachers.

First appearing on the Greenway in 2015, Let’s Dance Boston is one of the most vibrant free outdoor dance and music parties ever to take place in the city. In 2017, Let’s Dance Boston moved down to Dewey Square Park on The Greenway for four consecutive nights of dynamic live music and dance along with a special Sunday afternoon event, in association with the Jewish Arts Collaborative.

Bostonians from across the city participated in the free dance party. Fun for all, the five-day dance extravaganza included five different live bands preceded by expert dance instructors. Each event began with a 45-minute free dance lesson taught by professional teachers in the dance style of the evening. After the lesson, a live band performed a 90-minute set to accompany the dancing and continue the party.
