Spring Has Sprung on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza

April 08, 2022

Spring is here and so are upcoming free events on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza at Segerstrom Center. This spring will feature a variety of fun and familiar favorites, and brand new events including Tuesday Night Dance: K-pop (April 12, 19 & 26), Garden Party on the Plaza (April 23), Tuesday Night Dance: Bollywood (May 3, 10, 17, 24 & 31), and Plaza Prom (May 28). 

Every Tuesday in April and May they’ll bring back fan-favorite Tuesday Night Dance on the plaza. Tuesday Night Dance is fun, upbeat, and designed for all ages and abilities—all are welcome, no dance experience required. 

Come ready to groove in April with instructor Jamie Kim, who will teach choreography set to K-pop hits. Jamie has been teaching K-pop dance cover choreography and K-pop dance fitness classes since 2019 in Irvine, with experience in instructing adults and kids at all levels. Her teaching style focuses on explaining the details of each movement in simple and engaging ways so that anyone can easily learn and enjoy it. In May, instructor Apra Bhandari returns to the Plaza with all new Bollywood-themed choreography and workouts. Trained in several styles of dance including Kathak (an Indian classical dance form), Apra loves to combine the fun beats of Bollywood with energetic movements to create the perfect cardio class that everyone can enjoy.

On April 23, celebrate all things spring at Garden Party on the Plaza.  It’s an afternoon of fresh springtime art activities with local artist Sandy Cisneros and an even fresher set by Very Be Careful, whose exhilarating mix of music is sure to have even the shyest of wallflowers on their feet! A Caribbean soul and a California heart have sustained two decades of ceaseless romp-downs and raucous times for L.A.’s vallenato veteranos, inciting thousands to boogie to the Colombian coastal beat. Renowned for their Colombian vallenato and cumbia, Very Be Careful has helped to popularize the beauty of this 1950s-1970s sound around the world. Pumped at the clubs across the Americas and ripped in cyberspace and airwaves across the globe, Very Be Careful brings together everyone who knows early roots sounds and a stripped-down parranda is the fiercest and funniest way to party.

On May 28, plaza-goers will have the chance to relive (or redo) their prom with an evening under the stars. Plaza Prom will include a throwback dance party complete with a DJ and a live band, an over-the-top prom photo op, spiked punch from George’s Café, and a mix of 80s-90s hits played by SoCal favorite Eclectik. Their high-energy performances and innovative song mashups are filled with R&B, pop, funk and salsa influences that keep the crowd dancing all night long.
