DUMBO Brooklyn: Live at the Archway

posted by LIM College

by Mary Beth Maslowski


On Thursdays through September 29th, dance, sing, and swing at Dumbo’s “Live at the Archway” series. Head to Brooklyn underneath the Manhattan Bridge for a weekly cabaret with free outdoor musical performances, dj sets, dance classes, and more.

These performance reflect DUMBO’s creative spirit and Brooklyn’s diverse culture and encompasses a broad range of musical genres including salsa, R&B, jazz, and classic rock, and some of today’s emerging indie bands like TIGUE on July 28.

One half new music ensemble, one half art-rock band, TIGUE has influences that span eclectic contemporary, pop and avant-garde.

On August 6th check out Madame T and the Star Lights as they deliver sizzling summer swing and a journey of high camp performance that will make you want to dance and swoon! Madame T will also be combining projections, dance, and performance art into the show curated specifically for the Archway. 

Also, try out the half-hour dance classes, which begin at 6 pm and are followed by an hour of social dancing. Sessions include swing and lindy hop with the Harlem Swing Dance Society on August 11 and a tango class on August 25.
