Bryant Park Dance Party – Latin Nights

May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dance Party returns to Bryant Park and celebrates its 10th anniversary season with ten styles of dance over six nights! Dance Party events will take place every Wednesday and Thursday from May 1 to May 16. At each event, attendees meet at the iconic Bryant Park fountain to learn basic steps with expert instructors at 6pm. Afterwards, participants can test out their new moves to live music performed by a diverse selection of bands from 7pm-8:30pm.

This year’s series kicks off with New York City’s signature brand of Salsa and R&B – as well as Dance Party’s 50th all-time performance – served up by Uptown Royalty (5/1); followed by hits from Disco’s golden era from The Disco Nights (5/2); Bachata Tradicional with Bachata sensation Judy Santos (5/8); Lindy Hop from award-winning vocalist and bandleader Charles Turner & Uptown Swing (5/9); a night of Motown-inspired dance music from KD Browne (5/15); and a four-hour closing night event dubbed  with Latin Festival, featuring four different dance genres – Charanga, Cuban Salsa, Cha Cha Cha, and Salsa Dura – with the help of two legendary Latin dance bands, La Charanga Pacha and Jimmy Bosch Salsa Masters (5/16).

Hosted and Produced by Talia Castro-Pozo
