“Dancing In The Street” Returns to Oyster Bay


The Oyster Bay Main  Street Association announces the return of “Dancing in the Street,” a series of free dance evenings on the streets of historic and picturesque Oyster Bay.  

Following on the success of last year's “Dancing in the Street,” OBMSA invites the public to put on their dancing shoes and return to the streets of Oyster Bay for delightful evenings of pure fun. Dancers of all ages, skills, and styles are welcome. 

Mark your calendars now for three Fridays in July:   Friday, July 13th,  Friday, July 20th, and Friday, July 27th,  between 7:30 and 9:30 pm, on Audrey Avenue around the Bandstand.  Bring a chair if desired.  Additional dates for August may be announced later on.  

Music and dance instructions are provided by two of the most popular Long Island DJs: Louis del Prete, who the participants will remember from last year's events, and Mark James, a newcomer to the summer night street dancing in Oyster Bay. 

Main Street Association Promotion Chair Diane Meltzer remarked: “Since everybody enjoyed “Dancing in the Street” so much last year, we wanted to repeat the series this summer. This event brings the community together-- you can see dancers of all ages--families with small children, college kids, seniors; all taking to the floor.  What is there not to like about a starlit night in a beautiful town, good music, and fun dance instructions?” 

Barbara Pollock, one of the event organizers and an avid dancer, said: “We are very lucky to have secured DJ Louis del Prete for another year. Louis plays good dance music, understands his audience, teaches at various skill levels, and he can even sing!  We are also very pleased Mark James will be joining us; he and Louis provide great quality entertainment. No surprise they both have a great following on the Island.” 

“Dancing in the Street” is organized by the Oyster Bay Main Street Association. It is one of the community building/ downtown revitalization efforts by the organization, and promises to be a highlight of the summer season!
