Dancing in the Park first took place in 2011 as part of a City initiative to promote healthy, active living by providing free dance lessons to members of the community. Zumba, hip hop and country are just some of the many dance styles featured.

The program takes place at Stuart Park and runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday in July and August.
