Dance party at Zrinjevac

Dance party at Zrinjevac

From the 50s to the 70s of the last century, the favorite type of entertainment for Zagreb residents were dance parties. Many generations grew up keeping up with the world trends and dancing to the rhythm of the most popular pop, rock, jazz and swing hits. The Zrinjevac Dance Evenings revive the spirit of the old Zagreb dance parties.

Participants will be able to dance around the Music Pavilion, which became, back in 1891, a place known for organizing promenade concerts. The dance shoes will be moving to the rhythm of various music genres. There will be swing and rock'n'roll and the attendees will be dancing Charleston jive, salsa and tango. The diversity of the music and entertainment program is one of its main perks, enriching Zagreb's abundant summer event schedule.

From 28 July to 2 September, every Friday and Saturday, the residents of Zagreb, as well as its visitors, will be able to enjoy the Dance Evenings at Zrinjevac.

During these 10 summer evenings, the visitors will have a unique opportunity to mingle while dancing and listening to great music, alongside learning a few dance moves and enjoying amazing live shows.

Every weekend, Zrinjevac will be hosting dance workshops organized by the Dance Center Zagreb by Nicolas, where professional instructors will teach the visitors dance moves of the Viennese waltz, discofox, jive, tango, foxtrot and many others.

Give this opportunity a whirl at Zrinjevac from 5 pm. The dance workshops will be starting at 6 pm, while the concerts are scheduled to begin at 8 pm.

Admission is free for all programs. In case of unfavorable weather conditions the program will be rescheduled for Sunday.
