About the Event

“All that music and dance history blends seamlessly, couples dancing classic salsa moves, others do the cha cha cha, some managing to dance the merengue to everything, and some just free-styling it. It must be the most joyously cosmopolitan dance floor in all of Southern California.”—Glendale News-Press

Dance the night away with L.A.’s best salsa and Latin fusion bands at the Autry’s popular summer series. The outdoor parties include free lessons with award-winning salsa instructor Orlando Delgado, access to museum galleries, a separate children’s dance floor, and more. Tacos, margaritas, and other light refreshments are available for purchase from Crossroads West.
