Get Down in G'town

Dancing on the Waterfront: Summer Series is a free weekly outdoor dance class with the Potomac as your backdrop! This event takes place in Georgetown Waterfront Park, where participants of all ages and skill levels gather to embrace the joy of dancing. Every week, a DJ will spin a mix of music, blending various genres and beats. From salsa to square dancing, bachata, country line dancing and kizomba, you’ll get to try an array of dance styles.

The Georgetown BID is partnering with Dancing on the Waterfront to offer a special weeknight series on Tuesday evenings from June 11 – July 30. (Please see our schedule below for a note on the timing each week). If you can’t make it on Tuesdays, check out Dancing on the Waterfront’s regularly scheduled classes, Saturdays through October.

If you need to loosen up before you bust out those dance moves, take advantage of happy hour in Georgetown. Check out our guide below for some of the best deals in the area. (Photo by Sharon Ann Photography)
