    A “Dirty Dancing” dance-off at Assembly Row.
    A “Dirty Dancing” dance-off at Assembly Row.

    Baby might be going to Mount Holyoke in the fall, but first she needs to show up at Somerville’s Assembly Row on Friday, June 8, for Dancing on the Row: The “Dirty Dancing” edition.

    The festivities start at 6 p.m. with a salsa lesson from Eli “Lady” Pabon from MetaMovements, a Boston-based Latin dance company.

    Next, DJ Rob Suave will play salsa and “Dirty Dancing” tunes. Then, a dance-off begins: At 7:30 p.m., Pabon will pick the most coordinated couple to win a pair of tickets to see the upcoming “Dirty Dancing” musical in Boston, plus goodies from Assembly Row.


    The revelry lasts until 9 p.m. Gather in front of Caffè Nero (375 Assembly Row), and prepare to have the time of your life, spaghetti arms.
