Dance DTLA

Downtown Los Angeles has celebrated the summer evenings perfectly in Grand Park just in front of City Hall – and you can join in for FREE! Dance DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) is a weekly Friday night event all through the summer. With free admission you can dance the night away with friends, family, and all the new friends you will meet
