Come see how Lincoln Center does Pride Week at this celebration of timeless 90s club culture! Start the evening with a Burlesque House dance lesson from the outrageous glam choreographers Edie Nightcrawler and The Maine Attraction. Edie and Maine have collectively worked around the globe with everyone from Michel Gondry, MTV, The Latin Grammys, Lionel Richie and Lady Gaga. The evening’s dance lesson will be scored by DJ Rissa Garcia who has rinsed her vast stack of vinyl for the better part of two decades at clubs including Cielo Club, Output, and Avant Gardner.

Afterwards, put your new skills to the test with sets from Bright Light Bright Light and the iconic singer-songwriter Ultra Naté. Bright Light Bright Light’s electro-pop songs are deeply rooted in LGBTQIA+ empowerment and representation, and they have been seen touring with a multitude of icons including Cher, Elton John, and Scissor Sisters. Ultra was named one of Billboard Magazine’s ‘Greatest of All Time’ Top Dance Artists along with having three entries in the music industry bible’s respective ‘Greatest of All Time’. Her venerated platinum classic "Free" turns 25 in 2022 and it still hits just as hard as a post-pandemic anthem as it did back in 1997.
