COUNTDOWN TO NYE
In partnership with the Times Square Alliance, the New Victory Theater brings in MC Siobhan Santini Pellot, dance jams by Alberto Denis, and three teaching artists to host a family-friendly daytime dance party between 11am and 2pm. Olney Edmondson, Janice Acevedo, and Patrick Ferreri will warm up the crowd, then teach three choreographed moves, and then open up the party to freestyle dance.
The event is part of Dance Party NYC, a joyous citywide celebration of music and movement taking place at more than 80 venues, presented by The New York Public Library, in partnership with the Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Public Library, and in conjunction with the Festival of New York—a trailblazing movement comprising diverse organizations across the city with the aim of celebrating our city. The 80+ dance parties in all five boroughs will take place on August 6, featuring live salsa bands, silent discos, block parties, family dance classes, and more.
