Jorday Rivera's passion for hip-hop and Latin dance infuses her classes with rhythmic energy during each meeting at her namesake studio. Jorday's interest in dance began at a young age when her parents took her to the bustling streets of Broadway to watch colorful stage productions and the spontaneous musical numbers that would take place during each rainstorm. By the time she reached adulthood, Jorday had garnered extensive experience in mambo, salsa, cha-cha, and hip-hop disciplines and had danced side by side with the likes of Eddie Torres and Mario Diaz. This accumulation of hip-swiveling savvy eventually led Jorday to cultivate a love of teaching, finally opening her own dance studio in 1997. Today, the studio houses a variety of dance classes, from modern and hip-hop to belly dancing and Latin, led by a cadre of instructors trained in a panoply of styles.
Each 2.5- to three-hour tour, lead by urban geologist and lifelong NYC observer Jack Eichenbaum, explores different areas of Queens. Neighborhoods are changing throughout the borough because of the re-zoning renaissance and influx of new residents, and Jack's tours explain the history and highlights of the areas and speculate on future developments. Choose one of the following four tours and dates:
This two-hour tour will start with an hour of walking down and around a historic stretch of 7th Avenue in Harlem known to the world as the Boulevard of Dreams. Led by lifelong jazz aficionado and company founder Gordon Polatnick, you'll gain insight into the history and beauty of the jazz age and take a gander with newly informed eyes at the street that birthed stars such as Louie Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and more. The second hour of the tour is spent in the comfort of a local jazz club, where you'll hear a genuine neighborhood jam session from local, living jazz musicians.
Though it's known for landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Times Square, New York City offers so much more. The "so much more" is what NEWrotic New York City Tours founder Mark Preven wants visitors to experience. Growing up as the son of an airline employee, his passport boasts stamps from all over the world, giving him a greater understanding of how to truly experience a new place and culture as a tourist. With this experience as a world traveler, along with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Big Apple, he puts together unique tours that whisk participants past the requisite attractions and into the cacophonous heart of the real city.
Mark's guided jaunts can take visitors to neighborhoods adorned with graffiti art and Old World religious architecture, or to the water's edges of Roosevelt Island, where guests can see almost all of Midtown Manhattan. One tour traipses to jazz legend Louis Armstrong's home in Queens, while another takes visitors to the American Museum of the Moving Image to learn about the city's history with movie making. Regardless of the tour they choose, participants get to experience the New York that locals live and breathe, making them feel like a native resident, if just for one day.
