Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Saturdays, Tuesday and Thursday 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. Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees.

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.

National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded in 1976 by Jacques d’Amboise in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage children and motivate them toward excellence. Each year, NDI transforms the lives of over 40,000 New York City public school children and their communities through weekly classes, short-term residencies, and public performances. Under the artistic direction of Ellen Weinstein and a staff of professional teaching artists, programs are offered to all children, transcending barriers of language, culture, and physical and cognitive challenges. Children learn to work together and develop personal standards of excellence, a pride of achievement, and a curiosity about the world that supports their success in school and in life. No child pays a penny for NDI’s core programs. Children who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment throughout their dance training are invited to join the organization’s most advanced troupe, the NDI Celebration Team, and perform year-round at venues that have included Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, Juilliard, City Center, the Kennedy Center, the White House and the Academy Awards. NDI dancers have toured internationally to Geneva, Switzerland; Venice, Italy; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Shanghai, China.

Join a curatorial fellow for a tour of three current exhibitions. In the main gallery, Gregory Crewdson’s Fireflies series is being shown for the first time in its entirety; Crewdson’s photographs capture the fleeting light of these nocturnal creatures. In the Sunroom Project Space, Lauren Carly Shaw transforms the space into the setting of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper(1899), set in the late 19th century, when the original Glyndor House was constructed. Shaw chronicles the effect of confinement on a woman’s mental state. In the Sun Porch space, Reade Bryan’s sculptural installation investigates the way that iconic building materials, such as plywood and drywall supplies, are created and used. Here he evokes the effects of a flood or the mass of a cliff’s edge; the natural landscape appears to intrude on the interior, although the sculpture itself is made of domestic building material.

Típica ’73 began with a “Jam Session” Charanga (Flute/Violin) format in 1972 at an East Side club called “…and Vinnie’s. Eventually, it evolved into a 3-horn conjunto (combo) with Adalberto Santiago as lead vocalist. In 1975 Típica ’73 began recording “New Wave” Cuban music “La Candela,” “No Me Critiques,” and “La Escoba Barrendera”. In 1976, after a split due to creative differences, Típica ’73 emerged with a new format, which included the addition of a Flute/Sax, a Violin and Tito Allen as lead vocalist. Subsequent lead vocalists included Camilo Azuquita and José Alberto (El Canario). José Alberto was the vocalist in 1978 when Típica ’73 recorded the historic LP “Intercambio Cultural” (Cultural Exchange) at EGREM studios in Havana, Cuba. In 1983, Típica ’73 disbanded due to pressure and blacklisting stemming from the trip to Cuba. After an occasional reunion gig, and under the co-direction of founding members, Johnny Rodríguez and Sonny Bravo, Típica ’73 finally returned to its Charanga (Flute/Violin) roots and is currently performing with that format.

The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is a thrilling 11-piece salsa group which plays dynamic, dura arrangements of indie rock tunes we love. No bananas in the hair; this is innovative, astonishing salsa with a new, vibrant aesthetic. With an ever-evolving set list that includes songs by Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio, Spoon, M83, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Black Keys, and many more, the WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. The explosive arrangements have established the band as a groundbreaking force in the New York underground, and has let to international acclaim for its completely new approach to the genre. Led by percussionist/arranger Gianni Mano (from the Latin-funk legends Radio Mundial), and fronted by Argentinian chanteuse, Solange Prat, the WSO has found an audience among new and classic salsa lovers, quickly becoming one of the most popular bands in New York City. The WSO has been featured recently in Rolling Stone Magazine (on the 2013 Latin Hot List), and on MTV Iggy, Telemundo, Univision, and on the nationally syndicated program LatiNation on Fox.

Urban Theatre Movement's Handball, written by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld and directed by Brenda Banda delivers an explosive take on gentrification in New York City. The play tracks a park filled with characters as unique and diverse as the city itself. Tempers flare as new transplants work to make their mark while old residents struggle to maintain their way of life. Over the course of two hot, summer days we watch a once lively, buoyant park become extremely tense as each character struggles to find their way and survive while witnessing their neighborhood falling apart. Stories become intertwined, power is shifted and change reveals itself to be inevitable. Handball tells the story of modern-day urban America and the people struggling to find their way in it.

As childhood friends growing up in Denver Colorado, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, The Okee Dokee Brothers, were always exploring the outdoors. Whether it was rafting down their neighborhood creek, taking long bike rides into the country or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Joe and Justin were born adventurers. Their extended canoe trip down the Mississippi River inspired their GRAMMY Award winning album Can You Canoe? (2013 Best Children's Album) and their trek along the Appalachian Trail is the subject of their forthcoming release, Through the Woods (available May 20, 2014). With songs written by campfire and harmonies born on the water, the natural world is at the heart of their Americana folk music.

Rockaway!, a free public arts festival sponsored by the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy (JBRPC) to celebrate the reopening of Fort Tilden and recognize the ongoing recovery of the Rockaway peninsula, opens June 29 and continues through September 1, 2014. Invited by the Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA), an association of artists based in and around the Rockaways, and the JBRPC, MoMA PS1 has assisted and supported the conception of this festival.

One component of the festival is a group exhibition organized in collaboration with the Honolulu Biennial on the grounds of the newly restored Rockaway Beach Surf Club on Beach 87th Street in Rockaway Beach. Following Hurricane Sandy, the Surf Club was the one of the largest relief centers on the peninsula; their organization facilitated and directed over 5,000 volunteers, with major contributions from MoMA PS1.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

Mobile Mondays! & Salsoul Records have partnered to bring you a classic NYC Dance Experience. Mobile Mondays! is the premier all 45's vinyl night & music movement with a Mission to Save the Music, Preserve DJ Culture & Bring Back the Vibe & Soul of NYC. Originating in 1974 - NYC based Salsoul Records - named by Joe Bataan for his love of Salsa & Soul Music - is one of the most influential record companies in the disco era that has shaped the dance music industry for the last 40 years. Salsoul classics like - "My Love is Free", "Let No Man Put Asunder", "Call Me", "Got My Mind Made up" helped shape today's dance music & still control dance floors to this day. The show will feature The MM All Star DJ's, Operator Emz, Joey Carvello, Natasha Diggs, Just Blaze, Misbehaviour, $$$Mike. The event will be hosted by MM Hosts Miss Rebecca & Snkr Joe & Salsoul Records Label Manager, Rachael Hardway. Mobile Mondays! takes place every Monday 10pm at The Bowery Electric & gives music lovers a chance to go back to the New York City they love best; when records were events, the DJ was on the pulpit and the dance floor was epic.

Joe Bataan, the “King of Latin Soul,” helped coin the phrase "Salsoul" in 1974 lending the name to his first album. Bataan was influenced by two musical styles: the Latin boogaloo and African American doo-wop. Bataan recorded three albums and several singles for Salsoul Records and the Latin subdivision of Salsoul Records, Salsoul Leyendas. Titles include SalSoul, Rap-O-Clap-O, Joe Bataan II, Afrofilipino and a new compilation of his greatest hits titled Tropical Classics: Joe Bataan, which features the early 1979 hip-hop hit "Rap-O-Clap-O” and additional classic titles he performed for the Salsoul Leyendas label.

The three-piece female disco group First Choice was influential to early house music and the Salsoul Records movement. Their tracks “Let No Man Put Asunder” and “Dr. Love” are two of the most sampled tracks from the Salsoul catalog. Original group members Ursula Herring & Annette Hardeman will be joined on stage by disco artist Wardell Piper (“Super Sweet”) for their performance.

Double Exposure is one of the most prominent American-Disco groups of the Salsoul era known as the first group to release the 12-inch single. Their 1976 album chart-topping album Ten Percent featured a pair of major club hits including "Ten Percent" and "My Love is Free." Members James Williams, Joseph Harris, Charles Whittington & Leonard "Butch" Davis are actively touring and making music to this day.

Instant Funk burst onto the '70s disco scene with the million-selling single "I Got My Mind Made Up" and their Gold album Instant Funk. Paradise Garage DJ Larry Levan and engineer Bob Blank’s 1979 remix of “I Got My Mind Made Up” quickly flooded dance floors across the country. The band started out with the core lineup of bassist Raymond Earl, drummer Scotty Miller, and guitarist Kim Miller and later expanded to include additional members.

Skyy enjoyed worldwide success with their distinctive blend of sassy vocals, funky bass lines and thumping guitar licks. The Ladies of Skyy, Denise, Delores and Bonny are best known for their release of the Skyy Line album in late 1981. Their hit song “Call Me” became the first #1 R&B hit followed by their 1984 release of Inner City.

At a time when disco was still breaking into the mainstream, Carol Williams was one of the few female vocalists in the genre to hold stake in other creative elements of her craft besides singing. Working with producer Vincent Montana Jr., she not only selected a good share of material for her Salsoul debut album, 'Lectric Lady, but also co-wrote three selections and acted as co-publisher. 'Lectric Lady was released in 1977 and featured hits such as "Come Back" and "Love Is You."

<![CDATA[Sunset Music: Los Monstritos (Young Monsters)]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/06/sunset-music-los-monstritos-young-monsters http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/06/sunset-music-los-monstritos-young-monsters Date: August 6, 2014

Los Monstritos are young "monster" percussionist virtuosos who hurtle headlong into a variety of Latin music genres—from plena to boogaloo, from bomba to bachata and salsa, from rumba to meringue. To these styles, they add their own twist, reflecting the hip-hop and regaaeton rhythms of their Bronx neighborhoods. The members are Nelson Matthew Gonzalez, scion of one of the great families of Afro-Puerto Rican music; Oreste Abrantes, a Cuban Puerto Rican powerhouse conguero; and Jason Gonzalez, bongo virtuoso. Los Monstritos are pupils of some of the best Latin percussion masters of New York. Their music is sometimes hip, sometimes steeped in roots... always explosive in its delivery. At Wave Hill, the percussionists are joined by upright bass, guitar and keyboard players.

Start time: 7:00 pm

End time: 8:00 pm
