Midsummer Night Swing — Garba in the Park at Damrosch Park

"Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

2 East 91st Street, New York, NY 10128"

Kashyap Jani and Friends

Even if you are new to these energetic group dances from Gujarat in western India, you’ll quickly find your place on the dance floor during this spirited night of culture, community, and live music. Garba, with its repeating claps, twirls, and circular patterns, and raas, performed with sticks and rotating partners, are traditionally danced during the fall festival of Navratri and before weddings. Fun and social, they have been passionately embraced by young people across the Indian diaspora in recent years. Both are easy to learn, especially with our instructors on hand. The evening will also feature a stage performance of traditional garba by The Sa Dance Company.   — Lincoln Center
