How To Get Here

Expert instructors and local dance legends teach you how to move on two special evenings, highlighting two distinct dance styles that have important roots here in NYC. Registration encouraged, but not required; sign up for both dates here.

On Saturday, July 23, Talia Castro-Pozo hosts a Salsa lesson and dance social.

From beginner to all levels, this “On 2” New York Style Salsa class with Talia and a special guest will keep you moving! Learn the basic shines (solo steps) and some fancy turning patterns, which will get you prepped for the open session. Feel free to come with or without a partner.

On Saturday, August 27, Cebo Carr (NXGN) teaches you how to House dance.

House dance is often improvised with an emphasis on footwork and grooves through the body that play off of rhythms within Jazz, Soul, and Deep House music. It’s a dance for every body, with a great range of movement that can be tailored to the individual.

Each night starts off with a 40-minute, all-levels introductory class, which will transition into a full on dance party! All are welcome, regardless of skill level.

Drinks and small bites provided by Fornino.

This event is part of the Festival of New York!

About the Festival of New York

This summer marks the inaugural Festival of New York, a collaboration and celebration of the best this city has to offer: art, culture, and most importantly, US—the people whose hearts beat for New York. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we’re banding together—we’re talking live musical events, city-wide dance parties, neighborhood sports, volunteer opportunities, and so much more. The Festival offers the chance to grow, connect, and take action, all while celebrating everything that makes our city the place to be. Let’s celebrate our resilience and show the world that New York never left. The comeback summer is here!
