With June gloom giving way to hot summer days, it’s time to savor L.A.’s seductively, warm summer nights and dance under the stars at Dance DTLA. From now until September, the Friday series affords different ways to move. Beginner dance lessons at 7 p.m. are followed by a chance to dance or to just watch and enjoy until 11 p.m.
This week it’s disco (white polyester and your best Saturday Night Fever pose are optional). K-pop reigns next Friday, followed by salsa, Motown/funk and cumbia. With the Music Center Plaza renovation, the action moves to different Grand Park locales, but goes home to the plaza in early August, in the run-up to its grand reopening celebrations.
Each week’s dance style and specific location are available at musiccenter.org/tickets/events-by-the-music-center/danceDTLA.
Grand Park Event Lawn, 200 N. Grand Ave., downtown; Fridays through August 30, 7 p.m.; free. musiccenter.org.
