Learn to Shimmy and Shake with Dancing in Bryant Park

Update May 30: June 4’s Event has been rescheduled for Friday, June 6.

For 6 weeks this summer, lace up your dancing shoes and boogie til the sun sets with Dancing in Bryant Park. One part lesson and one part party, you'll learn to move like the pros and have the time of your life. First-rate live bands accompany each dance event so you'll feel like you're in Rio, Detroit, or Buenos Aires! Talia Castro-Pozo, the genius behind Sunset Salsa and Latin Mondays at TAJ in NYC, hosts this social dance party open to all ages and skill levels.
