Dance in the Park at Grafton Lakes
Grafton Lakes State Park, the Dance Flurry Organization, Capitol USA Dance and the Friends of Grafton Lakes State Park will host ‘Dance in the Park’ on Saturday, August 30. ‘Dance in the Park’ is open to dancers at all levels of experience – with or without a partner. The event will take place at the Deerfield Pavilion from 5 to 10 p.m., starting with a lesson followed by a swing dance. All proceeds from the night will benefit the Friends of Grafton Lakes State Park.
The lesson will be taught by Jason Fenton and will cover the basics of East Coast Swing. The main swing dance will feature a live band – the Dylan Perrillo Orchestra – and Mr. Fenton will DJ during the break between sets. There will also be food from Brunswick Barbeque and Brew and a raffle with prizes that include a gift certificate from Saratoga Savoy, a gift basket from Capitol USA Dance and CDs from local musician Patti Melita. Registration is $15 per person for the dance only, and $25 per person for dinner and the dance. Both fees cover the dance lesson and a night of live music.
Pre-registration is required for those who want dinner by Wednesday, August 27, but drop-ins for the swing dance are also more than welcome. For more information about Dance in the Park,call the park office at 518-279-1155.
