DANCE TIMING

Almost entirely "New York On 2" timing and style.

DESCRIPTION Several times a year, this event is held at the Brooklyn Museum with a good size dance floor area.  There is a basic salsa lesson early in the evening followed by performances and social dancing to DJ music on a pro sound system.  This venue is an interesting change from our usual On 2 locations, usually held in a dance studio or club.  And if you want to arrive a bit early, you can spend some time looking at the exhibits in the huge Brooklyn Museum.

The event is very well attended by On 2 mambo regulars and new-comers.  Including a lesson, performances and DJ for social dancing, it is a nice way for a dancer to spend a Thursday evening.
 

HOW TO GET THERE Held at the Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway (near Washington Avenue), Brooklyn, NY, 11238.  It is held on the 3rd floor in the Beaux-Arts Court.  Click Here For Map
