About The Event

The tour and concert are free with optional donation to your guide and to Celebrate Brooklyn.

The Walking Tour will combine a stroll through the historic streets of Park Slope while relating the history of dance in New York as many styles of dance have originated in our city from tap, modern dance and the Lindy Hop to break dancing/hip-hop and NYC-style salsa.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s exceptional second company returns to the Bandshell on the 45th anniversary of its inception with a program of recent work that showcases these young artists’ breathtaking skill and athleticism. Works will include Road to One (choreographed by Darrell Grand Moultrie), an excerpt from Tracks (Uri Sands), Breaking Point (Renee I. McDonald), and the mischievous and profoundly joyful Where There Are Tongues (Bradley Shelver), which features music by the Occitan vocal and percussion group Lo Còr De La Plana.

Note: Optional social hour from 5:00pm at Sharlene's Bar. Down home spot! Inexpensive drinks. Walking Tour begins in front of Sharlene's by 6:00pm. The dance performance concert in Prospect Park begins at 8:00pm. We'll aim to arrive early enough for seats which are first-come, first served.
