Dancing to Live Latin Music on the Highline! (LET'S DO IT AGAIN!!)

Please RSVP Responsibly.  No need to RSVP "No". 

¡Arriba! Community Dance Parties at the High Line

Arriba

Grab your friends and bring your dancing shoes – evenings of live Latin music and dancing are returning to the High Line this summer!

We can enjoy dinner and dessert before dancing under the stars. On the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets we will find tacos, gelato, ice pops, and more seasonal treats from food vendors.  

We will meet at 6 p.m. at the staircase that goes up to the High Line on 14th Street, to go grab something to eat and then head back up to the High Line once we are done eating to work off the calories! Please indicate in your RSVP if you will be joining us for a quick bite, or if you will just meet us later for dancing.

Friends of the High Line is pleased to partner with HAI and Hudson Guild to host some of New York City’s best Latin bands at the High Line, transforming the park into an open-air dance floor at sunset.

Part of High Line Live! – a performance series at the High Line – ¡Arriba! nights in June, July, and August feature different live acts bringing their own energy, musical style, and flavor to our community dance parties.

On Wednesday, August 21st ... Inspired by the guajiro musical rhythms of Cuba, Nu D'Lux of New York City offers a funky mix of son montuno, rumba, danzon, and timba styles to close out the ¡Arriba! series.

About Nu D'Lux

Established in 1995 in Brooklyn, Nu D’Lux has its roots in Son Montuno, an important genre of Cuban popular music that is the foundation of many dance forms including salsa. Co-leaders Aaron Halva and Jainardo Batista-Sterling fuse European and African musical influences, blending a profound respect for traditional Latin music with a hearty dose of funky innovation all with an urban sensibility.

    Hi All! Tomorrow should be a fun night! It will probably be VERY hot and humid, so you may want to bring some water.

    I will be AT THE BOTTOM of the stairs that go up to the High Line on 14th street (DO NOT GO UPSTAIRS, meet at the bottom of the stairs) at 6 p.m. Whoever wants to join for dinner should be at that meeting spot no later than 6:15, as we do not have much time to go get a bite and get back to the High Line. Even if you call or text, we will not be able to wait for you.

    We should be back at the music hopefully by 7 for those who are just coming for the music/dancing. We will meet UP ON THE HIGH LINE to the right of the band, as you face them. (in other words, look at the band, then go to your right and we will be to that side)

    I sent an email with my phone number. If you did not get the email, let me know and I will resend. If you need to reach me, call or text the number provided in the email.

      Sure. I totally get it. I don't do well in the hot humid weather either. So I don't know how much dancing I'll be doing tonight. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
