    We love a good dance fitness workout, but wouldn’t Zumba be a million times better if you could do it with a drink in your hand? Just in time for crop-top season, we’ve rounded up some of NYC’s best ongoing dance parties where you’re guaranteed to work up a sweat.

    From bhangra to booty-bass, with healthy helpings of Latin, house, and swing, these New York events are movement-friendly oases in a nightlife scene where bottle service and Wall Street douchebaggery often overshadow any actual dancing. They’re handpicked for having some of the most talented DJs, enthusiastic crowds, and groove-centric dance floors in the city. Some even offer free dance lessons to simply get you in the spirit. With cover charges ranging from free to $20, they’re also among the most affordable — so a night out dancing could end up costing less than your standard SoulCycle session (and include way more soul).

    If you’re in search of a cardio workout sans Spandex, pine no further: Just dust off your dancing shoes and get ready to shimmy your way into summer.
