The Dance Floor: Aurora y Zon del Barrio (FREE)
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Hit The Dance Floor on Friday nights at the Atrium, featuring hits from the most-loved musical genres of today.
A Lincoln Center tradition at the David Rubenstein Atrium since 2015, ¡VAYA! is a showcase for the best Latin band dance music the city has to offer. ¡VAYA! offers devotees of salsa and Latin music a home on the Upper West Side to enjoy friendly community, vibrant live orchestras, and a smoking-hot dance floor. Whether you are coming to dance or just to listen to music, nuestra casa es tu casa. Part of The Dance Floor series, this season of ¡VAYA! celebrates some of the series' inaugural groups, such as performers Aurora y Zon del Barrio. Aurora Flores, a respected ethnomusicologist in her own right, stands out as the rare female bandleader in her field. Aurora will direct her 15-piece band, with special guest Fania All-Star Nicky Marrero and Cuatro player Prodigio, through an exploration of a century of Nuyorican musical history.
This event is approximately two hours.
