 Ordway’s Summer Dance Series is a weekly social dance event offering free dancing and live music in Rice Park (5th and Market Street in downtown Saint Paul) starting at 5:30 pm on Thursday, June 19 and continuing on Thursday nights through July 24th.

The Ordway’s Summer Dance Series highlights a different music genre and dance technique every Thursday with basic lessons by professional dance companies and live music by local bands. Past events have included the rhythm of Latin social dancing with Salsa del Soul or spinning your partner around ballroom style. The lessons are fun for all ages and dance ability levels. And after the hour-long dance lesson, the dance floor is open for all to put those moves to practice during open dancing the rest of the evening with a live, local band.

The Saint Paul Hotel will provide alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase.
