The three best things to do in New York today

By Dana Varinsky

1. Shake it at Midsummer Night's Swing
The annual summer dancing series brings lindy-hop, salsa, tango, silent disco and more to Lincoln Center from tonight through July 11. Worried about your dancing skills? Don’t be! Pros teach lessons every evening, before the live bands take the stage. Grab a partner and get swinging. (Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center. $17)

2. Get cultural at Night at the Museums
Explore one of the most concentrated museum districts in the city at this one-night-only event. Part of the River to River festival, you can gain access to the South Street Seaport Museum, the National September 11 Memorial Museum, The Skyscraper Museum, the National Museum of the American Indian and more at no cost whatsoever. (Various Locations, 4-8pm. Free)

3. Keep the Jurassic Park fun going at Hold on to your butts
In this live shot-for-shot reenactment of Jurassic Park, every character (including the dinosaurs) is played by just two guys. The show's returning to the PIT for 13 nights following rave reviews and two sold-out runs. You'll never see this classic movie the same way again. (People's Improv Theater, 123 E 24th St. $20)
