About the event

A special SITP Dance Ambassador 4 Week Latin Dance Lessons series (July 25 - Aug 15) will lead to 2 Salsa In The Park events in the Courtyard (Aug 26 & Sept 16)!

Our 4-week Latin Dance Lessons at the BCYF Blackstone Community Center will bring people together of all backgrounds and abilities for inspiring, interactive programming that will lead to participants feeling ready to support everyone who attends our two Salsa In The Park events at the Blackstone Courtyard. For Info on the lessons and to register for free, email (walk ins not allowed, please contact us).

Our Salsa In The Park events on Aug 26th & Sept 16th will include the following:

Mobile dance floors, lessons, dance coaching for beginners, social dancing, Timba/Follow along dance lines, Water Station, Music corner, Performances, bag check and the awesome and welcoming vibes that makes Salsa In The Park so special and inviting to all...

Schedule for events:

2:45-4pm: Timba lines/follow alongs led by MetaMovements dance hosts and more social dancing!

Since its inception, an explicit goal of MetaMovements has been to enhance the quality of life in Boston through the celebration of Latino arts and culture. We have done this by creating safe spaces and promoting healthy behaviors.

MetaMovements created Salsa In The Park in 2008 in direct response to community concerns regarding a spike in drug use and violence in the courtyard park area of the BCYF Blackstone Community Center at the time. Offering a community engagement solution, MetaMovements decided to offer an interactive outdoor, all-ages salsa dance experience in partnership with the Blackstone. Due to the pandemic and other changes, we were unable to continue offering this programming at the Courtyard. So we began to ramp up our mobile Salsa In The Park efforts to bring our programming to other cities across the Commonwealth! This summer, with the BCYF Blackstone Courtyard still holding a great piece of our hearts, we are so excited about partnering once again with the BCYF Blackstone to bring Salsa In The Park programming back to what many of us refer to as our home base :-)
