This year marks the 17th season of Dane Dances!, the very popular free outdoor dance concert series held each Friday evening in August on the rooftop of the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center.

With approximately 5,000 people in attendance each week, Dane Dances has established itself as a premier summertime destination in Dane County. We’re hoping with your support to make this season the best yet. These events celebrate diversity, promote goodwill and enhance the quality of life and health in our local community. At each dance you will see almost every age group. We pride ourselves on our family-friendly and fun events that also promote physical activity.

Our great partner “Monona Terrace” is hosting a fundraiser for Dane Dances! on Friday, March 4, 2016. The event, “Funky Dance Madison” is featuring two popular local bands,” ABBA Salute” and “VO5”, with DJ ACE. It will be at Monona Terrace Exhibition Hall from 6:00 to 10:00 pm.

Dane Dances is a 501c(3) not for profit organization, whose mission is to provide a joyous social experience, through music, dance, and other activities that helps to facilitate improved race relations in Dane County and surrounding areas. As a result of this social interaction, an appreciation and respect is developed for our diverse community.
