Thursday, May 17th: Celebrate Brooklyn! Brazilian Dance Party + Free Dance Lessons

Celebrate Brooklyn! Brazilian Dance Party
Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn

Seamlessly fusing Brazilian and Gulf Coast musical traditions, Brooklyn’s own Nation Beat will rock the stage with their bold and colorful sounds—something like Carnival and Mardi Gras rolled into one.

The evening will also feature the thunderous drumming of Maracatu New York.

Greg Caz will spin Brazilian beats.

A hip-shakin’ dance lesson from Cumbe: Center for African and Diaspora Dance’s Funmilayo Chesney kicks off the party.
