25 Best Nights OutThe Floor Improv Night
Picture South America’s most sultry, happening neighborhood milonga, throw in some of Hollywood’s most talented career dancers, and you get a sense of the scene during this one-of-a-kind night at King King Hollywood. Every third Monday of the month, stylish couples swarm the warehouse-like space to dance freestyle combinations of mainly tango, swing and hip-hop. A live band provides an improvised blend of jazz, funk, Latin and Afro beat.

The Floor Improv Night is a live jam session with musicians and dancers of all genres. Carolina Cerisola and Sascha Escandon have successfully created an event night that, as their goal was in creating it, fills a void in Los Angeles, CA.
Los Angeles and Hollywood are cities that hold some of the most incredible talent in music and dance. This event gives those talented individuals the opportunity to come play, dance and enjoy themselves freely and expressively. Everything seems so well organized, and yet not, as it has so much going on due to all the talent that attends. The environment gives everyone the opportunity to have an input, without rules, or egos.
The venue itself, King King in Hollywood, seems perfect for the type of event that this is. The lights, the sound, the stage set-up, dance area, and all its attributes make it seem almost a magical production. The Floor Improv Night has grown tremendously since the time when it was started and a lot of growth and success seems to be coming in the future.
Secret Things to do After-Hours
#1 The Floor ImprovOnce a month on a Monday, the Floor Productions organizes a night at the King King club, where the best professional dancers and musicians in the city show up to let loose and make music. Nothing is choreographed or planned – people just get up and dance with each other as others jam on the piano. Everyone is welcome to join in, but be prepared to be wowed by the most talented hip-hop dancers, salsa dancers and jazz sax players, all improvising in the same circle, bouncing moves off one another.
