Back by popular demand! Our Dancing in the Park series returns for a second season with performances and films guaranteed to get you moving. These events take place in the public space of the Aga Khan Park, a venue for individuals and families to gather and enjoy social and cultural activities all season long. We look forward to welcoming you!
Catch a disco-era remake of an ultimate classic film. Directed by the legendary Sidney Lumet, the unforgettable performances by Diana Ross, Richard Pryor, and a twenty-year-old Michael Jackson will have you singing and dancing along to the score of Quincy Jones, Luther Vandross, and others.
When Harlem schoolteacher Dorothy (Ross) tries to save her dog from a storm, she's miraculously whisked away to the realm of Oz. After accidentally killing the Wicked Witch of the East upon her arrival, Dorothy is told about the Wiz (Pryor) — a wizard who can help her get back to Manhattan. With an ever-growing group of friends — the Scarecrow (Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell), and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross) — each with their own request for the Wiz, Dorothy eases on down the Yellow Brick Road in search of a way home.
