The Downtown Dance continues with a time warp to the 70s!
Come join a joyous mass of dancing Angelenos on a long summer night. Learn 70s dance moves from such as the hustle, electric slide, and the funky chicken dance. Free dance lessons, live bands, and an open atmosphere make this event a perfect opportunity to experience the 70s.
What to Expect
• The event is FREE and no tickets or sign-ups are required
• No experience necessary. All ages and levels welcome
• Beginning dance lessons are taught at 6:30, 7:45, and 8:30
• Music provided by DJ and live band
• Food and drink is available onsite
• Dancing is MANDATORY :)
The event is first come, first serve. Arrive early at the Music Center. The dance floor gets crowded after 7:30, but the music is loud and you can dance anywhere. For those coming late from work, you can still catch dance lessons at 7:45 and 8:30.
Underground self-parking is available at the Music Center Garage for $9. Look for the entrance on Grand Avenue between First Street and Temple Street. Street parking is also available at a discounted fare.
I recommend public transit. The Purple and Red line take you directly to the Music Center. Why pay for gas and parking and brave traffic when you have a train system that runs all night?
After the last dance we'll take a short trip to Little Tokyo for supper. Restaurant row is open late, with Ramen Houses, Curry Houses, Sushi Bars, Shabu Shabu, and Izakaya. My default is Suehiro Cafe, which offers a range of Japanese cuisine at an affordable fare.
A Final Word
We'll see you there!
