Though the famous Midtown establishment conjures images of fancy ballets, box seats, and over-the-top operas for the glittering elite, Lincoln Center Theater was actually built to allow people from all walks of life the ability to enjoy the arts. According to the Lincoln Center’s official website, the organization observes its founder John D. Rockefeller 3rd's mandate that the arts are "not for the privileged few, but for the many." In addition to affordable ticket pricing and the distribution of thousands of free tickets each year to culturally underserved populations, Lincoln Center always presents themed programming throughout the summer to partake in and enjoy the arts. This summer, Lincoln Center is hosting Midsummer Night Swing at Damrosch Park. The events all merge dance and live music into interactive affairs that provide dance lessons alongside live music. Advance tickets are $17.00 and the themes, performers, and dance instructors change nightly.
