Summer Sway takes over The Shed’s outdoor, public Plaza on Friday and select Saturday evenings, July 15 through August 27. Inspired by the rich history and the vibrant presence of Black social dance in our city and beyond, we invite you to join as we celebrate the beauty, healing power, joy, and liberation that these dance traditions give us.
Show off your moves and pick up new ones! New York’s fiercest DJs will open the dance floor from 5 pm to sunset on Friday evenings. Every other Saturday, bring your family and friends for dance cyphers, battles, sessions, and parties led by some of the most renowned choreographers and companies who continue to reinterpret styles of house, hip hop, bomba, Bruk Up, the Philly Bop, the hustle, and more.
Enjoy specialty cocktails from Cedric’s, The Shed’s bar. The Plaza stays open throughout the week, so make the space your own to gather, relax, and celebrate the season with your friends.
All Summer Sway events begin at 5 pm and end at sunset.
