During the summer, Coney Island’s Boardwalk plays host to legendary dance parties as well as impromptu jumpin’ and jammin’. Photographer Jim McDonnell captures the exuberant spirit of Coney’s dancers in this vid shot over the course of the Summer 2010. “Everyone likes to dance at Coney Island. Whether it’s the amazing Coney Island Dancers, in front of the Polar Express or at the Mermaid Parade,” he says. Music is the Stockholm band the Teddybears from their yet-to-be released in the US album “Devil’s Music.”
If watching the vid puts you in the mood to tear it up, come out to the Coney Island Dancers Friday and Saturday parties on the Boardwalk. “We have been on the beach since 1996, dancing to the sounds of house music, funk, soul and disco,” says their website. Their free parties start in May and end in September. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
