The year 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of Big Band Dances in Metro Parks. Enjoy summer Saturday nights dancing and listening to live Big Band music played by some of Nashville’s best musicians. Feel free to bring picnic baskets, lawn chairs, and the kids.

If you don’t know how to dance, you can learn on the spot. During band breaks, Dance World offers two free group dance lessons from 7 to 7:30 p.m. and again from 8:30 to 8:50 p.m. The dances taught are listed in parenthesis on the schedule below.
Enjoy music and dancing from 7 until 10 p.m. at the Centennial Park Event Shelter.
