A contemporary of such greats as Tito Puente, Machito, and Tito Rodriguez, Orlando Marin is the only Latin orchestra leader from New York's golden era of mambo still performing regularly. Marin formed his first band in 1951 and recorded his first album in 1954 on Fiesta Records. Since then, he has performed at esteemed national and international music venues and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Bobby Capo Lifetime Achievement Award, which is awarded in recognition of nearly a half-century of dedication to Latin music. For the seventh consecutive year, this all-time favorite will be lighting up the ¡Arriba! stage.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

Presented by WNET and Indie Lens Pop Up

Join us for a preview screening of the documentary T-Rex by Zack Canepari and Drea Cooper. Seventeen-year-old Claressa "T-Rex" Shields came from the streets of Flint to reach the Gold Medal podium in London in 2012, the first time women were allowed to box in the Olympics, but as we see in this coming-of-age story, life outside the ring may be an even tougher fight.

After the screening there will be a Q & A with the producer of 'T-Rex', Sue Jaye Johnson, and NYC Parks boxing teacher Colleen Flood.

Sue Jaye Johnson is a documentary artist working in radio, photography, film and interactive technologies. A two-time Peabody Award winner, Johnson's work frequently looks at the role of women in society. Recently, she spearheaded an unprecedented collaboration between The New York Times, NPR, and WNYC to tell the story of the first women to box in the Olympic games. The series included the radio diary of the then unknown teenage boxer Claressa "T-Rex" Shields. Claressa’s diary, which aired on NPR’s "All Things Considered" in 2012, led her to work on a feature documentary about Claressa's journey from Flint, Michigan to the top of the podium in London. T-Rex premiered at SXSW in 2015 and will be on PBS's Independent Lens in August 2016.

Colleen Flood teaches Power Punch at the Tony Dapolito Recreation Center. Colleen started boxing in 2003 and started competing in 2005 on an amateur level. She competed in numerous competitions in New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, such as Challenge of Champions, Battle at the Pier, and Fight Night NJ.
