Welcome to Dane Dances!

Dane Dances! is a family friendly event on the stunning Monona Terrace rooftop every Friday evening in August. The much-anticipated summer music series is a great way to get down and dance with your friends, coworkers, or family. The rooftop gets shaking as the sun sets against the iconic Wisconsin State Capitol with the breeze of the Lake Monona at your back while you dance. Feel free to bring a blanket, chair and picnic basket; seating on the rooftop is limited. Sorry, carry in alcohol is prohibited. Dane Dances! promotes inclusivity with a fun night of music and dancing to DJs and bands for all ages.

Food and cocktails are available for purchase at 5:00 p.m. Food by Kipps Kitchen, Lake Vista Cafe, La Taguara,and Lemongrass.

In the case of inclement weather, please call 608-261-4094 after 2:00 p.m. for new concert location. Rain Location for August3, 10, 17 & 31 is MONONA TERRACE. Concerts will be moved inside unless otherwise indicated. Alliant Energy Center is the rain back-up for August 24th.
