The Music Center downtown offers free dance lessons on Friday nights twice a month through the summer. You can be a novice or an expert, a kid or a kid-at-heart. Come without a partner, they’ll find you one. Each lesson highlights a different genre of dance/music. Parking is $9 at the Music Center lot, but you could also save some dough by taking Metro (Red line stop at Civic Center Station). For more info, follow this link.
