The best free weekly dance party in Los Angeles is back for its 13th year! The Music Center’s Dance DTLA offers incredible evenings of dancing under the stars at Grand Park, all summer long. It’s all-ages, always free, and always fun. And as in past years, Dance DTLA is divided into two distinct event series:
Dance Downtown takes places on alternating Friday nights from 7 to 11 p.m starting on June 23. Participants receive free dance instruction with each event focusing on a unique dance style, from Cumbia and the Two-Step to Bollywood and Disco.
DJ Nights brings an evening of entertainment curated by influential artists and tastemakers who give voice to L.A.’s dynamic and vibrant culture. Each evening includes music, dancing, arts and aesthetics, all taking place from 9 to midnight on alternating Fridays starting June 30.
Dance DTLA will conclude on September 1. You can check out the complete summer schedule below.
