City of Music: Salsa on the High Line

  • Jun 19, 2013 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*** No need to RSVP "no" please ***

Do you salsa? Or perhaps just want to listen to a good latin band? Let's head to the beautiful High Line park for the season kickoff of their !Arriba! Community Dance Party.

What is that?

Friends of the High Line in partnership with HAI and Hudson Guild are hosting some of New York City’s best Latin bands at the High Line park, transforming the park into an open-air dance floor at sunset. Launching the party are the sweet sounds of Orlando Marin. Marin is the last mambo King, and he and his dynamic band will be filling the air with traditional salsa and merengue rhythms that will get everyone shaking to the beat of the timbales drums.

The important stuff ...

  • Bring your dancing shoes. Even if you don't know how to salsa, someone might ask you to dance and show you a thing or two.
  • RSVP only if you seriously plan to attend as space is limited. If you RSVP and I notice you have a number of no shows or a history of last minute cancellations, you will be removed.

    Thanks to everyone that came out tonight. The joint was packed tonight, but that was to be expected with the quality of music tonight -- the joint was jumping and everyone was dancing. I hope everyone got to try their hand at salsa for at least one song. If not, I'm going to get you on the floor next time.

    I'm on a waitlist ? :(

    June 19, 2013

    • christina

      Sweet I guess we are going...no longer waitlisted...

      June 19, 2013

    • Kevin

      Nope, you're all confirmed RSVPs. I organize these events for a few groups and like to maintain a bit of intimacy with these things so we all get a chance to talk to each other. It's a nice day for a concert and people really want to check this out, so I'm opening the event. There's going to be a huge meetup crowd there today, hopefully no one is going to feel lost in the shuffle.

      You know what, it's hump day and the weather is beautiful out -- everyone is getting confirmed RSVPs today! I like these things to be manageable in size so everyone gets a chance to actually "meet up" and interact with everyone but what the heck, let's all go have some fun.

    I've never salsa dance before do you have to have experience?

    June 18, 2013

    • Kevin

      Nadia, you don't have to dance, you can just enjoy the music. But salsa is a structured dance so having a bit of experience makes some people feel less self conscious. I wouldn't worry about it though -- the only important thing is feeling the music, shaking your booty a little, and having fun. Besides, you may be able to find a cute guy willing to show you the basic steps.

    Dancing shoes? This event is outdoor right?

    June 17, 2013

    • Kevin

      Yes, this is an outdoor event. You probably don't want to wear your leather soled ballroom shoes for this, but inversely you don't want to wear your 4 inch heels if you plan to let the music move you.
