Named after a stripped-down style of Flamenco often sung a capella or with percussion alone, the New York-based Flamenco dance company, A Palo Seco, combines traditional techniques with a modern, metropolitan flair. Returning to SummerStage for the first time since opening for Ballet Hispanico in 2014, the company will perform with a live band, and hold a free 45-minute dance class led by artistic director Rebecca Tomas before the show, sharing their expertise in Flamenco with the Queensbridge community.

Free dance classes are held on stage before dance performances. All are welcome and no RSVP is required.

WHAT IS SUMMERSTAGE? For New York music fans, SummerStage is always one of the highlights of the summer-concerts calendar. The City Parks Foundation series, which celebrates its 34th anniversary this year, is a juggernaut among warm-weather concert presenters, booking everything from classic New York hip-hop artists in outerborough NYC parks to big-name indie-rock bands on the Central Park mainstage.

When is SummerStage? This year's festival runs from June 1 through September 24. Events happen almost every day of the summer including both free concerts, dance parties, live theater, ballet and an outdoor opera series. The series' affiliated benefit shows (for which you'll need a ticket) run through September.

Where is SummerStage? Events happen at many of the city's parks in all five boroughs. The iconic SummerStage mainstage in Central Park, situated at Rumsey Playfield, houses plenty of gigs. But the series is by no means a Manhattan-centric affair, with concerts taking place all summer at parks and outdoor spaces throughout NYC.

How do I get tickets to SummerStage? As always, the majority of SummerStage's offerings are 100 percent free.
