Segerstrom Center to Host Tuesday Night Dance Classes This Spring

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is kicking up the heat on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza dancefloor with its popular Tuesday Night Dance series featuring Salsa on April 6, 13, 20 and 27, and Bollywood on May 4, 11, 18 and 25.

They're ideal during this time of quarantine and stay-at-home because, once you've mastered the steps during the classes at the Center, they can be handless, distanced and energize any room with the music and moves so unique to both dance styles. Classes are 6:30- 7:30pm, with check-in at 6pm. Spaces are just $10 each, and 28 spaces are available. Immediate sign-ups are encouraged because Tuesday Night Dance sells out quickly.

SALSA - April 6, 13, 20, & 27

Latin dancer/choreographer Lyrik Cruz will inspire experienced and novice Salsa aficionados alike! He was part of the Center's National Dance Day celebration in 2019, conducting his class on stage in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. He's back with a socially distanced series of classes on the Argyros Plaza.

Lyrik Cruz is an acclaimed choreographer and master instructor who has danced in just about every corner of the world. He has served as a guest choreographer to more than 20 dance companies as well as choreographed for shows at Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom and major music venues all along the East Coast. Most recently, Cruz garnered nominations for his choreography in the movie SHINE from the Chita Rivera Awards and the World Choreography Awards. Lyrik adds a unique flair and vibrant energy to every project he is involved in and is on a mission to share his passion with the world by bringing his Latin fusion to the forefront of TV and film.
