“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
Visitors of all ages will enjoy L.A.'s best salsa and Latin fusion bands at the Autry's popular summer dance party. The series features free dance lessons with award-winning salsa instructor Enio Cordoba, hot-off-the-grill food, ice-cold drinks and spirits, access to museum galleries, a separate children's dance floor, and more.
