Join us for an evening exploring Latin dance in the beautiful setting of Crystal Bridges’ Great Hall!

Come embark an adventure exploring styles such as Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Kizomba, Cumbia and more. From its origins in African drumbeats and the traditional dances of Indigenous cultures in Mexico, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean, Latin dancing has enamored people across the world with its sensual moves and electric energy.

We’ll explore these dances throughout 2023 with dance nights in January, April, and July. Together we can learn about their history and impact on the world today—as well as have a blast along the way.

The fun starts with a one-hour, beginner dance class at 7:30 p.m. (no partner needed!), followed by social dancing from 8:30 to 11 p.m. See you on the dance floor!

Free, tickets required. Reserve your spot online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
