east harlem danceAurora & Zon del Barrio every Sunday afternoon in Spanish Harlem for an oldskool Sunday Afternoon Danzette where the community comes together to socialize, eat, drink and dance on the hardwood floor of the air-conditioned multi-purpose plaza of the Julia de Burgos Performing Arts Center. 

Salsa Warriors’ Dj, will be spinning the classics in these Sunday afternoon soirees where artists such as Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Alfredo “Chocolate” Armenteros, Nicky Marrero, Harvey Averne, Nelson Gonzalez and many others have been spotted.

Back in the day, every social club and big hotels like the New Yorker or the Chateau Madrid featured matinees where dancers could come to socialize, drink and eat.

These little “danzettes” are back and now you can try out your own salsa steps indoors, inside the air conditioned multi-purpose plaza of the Julia de Burgos Performance & Arts Center. Spend an afternoon dancing to a live orchestra, listening to good music, enjoying good food, drink, and good company. Oh, and did I mention… it’s FREE?

3 — 8 pm, Every Sunday afternoon starting July 12 through August 9th
