Thank you for a great summer of evening dances!

New Location: Dewey Square Park

We will be dancing at a brand new location: Dewey Square, on the Rose Kennedy Greenway! It is just steps from South Station, next to the Federal Reserve Building.

Here is a google maps link to Dewey Square. We encourage everyone to take public transportation if possible. If you are driving in from points north we suggest parking at Assembly Square or Alewife to access public transport.

Dewey Square is in front of the larger-than-life mural, that has just been updated with a new design.

About the Dances

We’re excited to provide this free, outdoor, multi-genre, participatory dance series for FAC and Greater Boston communities.

Each Tuesday evening in July and August, starting on July 11, will offer basic instruction by an experienced leader, music (live and occasionally recorded), and a welcoming atmosphere. It is not necessary to have previous dance experience or to dance with a partner. For more information, see about folk dancing. We look forward to seeing you in Dewey Square!


Full 2024 leader and musician lineup coming soon!
