Show off your best steps 30 feet above Manhattan at the High Line’s ¡Arriba! with DJ Mickey Pérez, The Pedrito Martinez Group, and Antonio Doza & Doza Dance Company.
For two nights this summer (July 13 & August 17 from 6-9pm), the High Line will transform its elevated park into an open-air dance floor for a salsa party! Join local salsa legends for a night you’ll always remember.
Lessons will be taught by Antonio Doza & Doza Dance Company, followed by a live salsa performance from The Pedrito Martinez Group. After you get your sweat on, Chicago-born and Miami-raise DJ Mickey Pérez will continue bringing the heat with beats for the remainder of the night.
¡Arriba! is open to everyone, regardless of experience. So whether you have two left feet, or were born to move those hips, the event is sure to be a great way to shake up the week—it’s no wonder it’s the High Line’s longest-running public program.
It is encouraged you reserve a spot in advance but one is not required. Walk-ups will be welcome so long as the event hasn’t reached capacity. You can RSVP to the July 13th event here. Plus, the show goes on rain or shine as ¡Arriba! is entirely covered.
The schedule for July 13th is as follows:
6 – 6:15pm | Salsa music set by DJ Mickey Pérez
6:15 – 7pm | Salsa lessons by Antonio Doza & Doza Dance Company
7 – 7:15pm | Salsa music set by DJ Mickey Pérez
7:15 – 8:30pm | Live salsa performance by The Pedrito Martinez Group
8:30 – 9pm | International dance music set by DJ Mickey Pérez
If you can’t make it to next week’s event, try again on their second ¡Arriba! night happening Thursday, August 17.
