Details

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

¡Arriba! Community Dance Parties at the High Line

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 (http://www.nudlux.com/)

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.
