Walking the length of the still-expanding High Line gives you the (literal and metaphorical) feeling that you’ve risen above the ordinary NYC life — existing, if only momentarily, in a heightened state of reality that’s caused more than one person to do a little dance or break into song.

Friends of the High Line and the Hudson Guild can’t help make your musical theater ambitions come true (yet) — but on August 12, they’ve got a plan for that patch of elevated earth that makes you feel like dancin’.

“Arriba! Mambo & Salsa on the Highline” sanctions your move-and-groove instincts by inviting you to put on some dancing shoes and join New York Hustle Congress event director Lori Brizzi — who will lead mambo and salsa lessons as the Orlando Marin Orchestra plays live.

The event is free. No RSVP is required. No sponsor or participant will mock your skill level — because anyone who commits to the mambo or salsa soon becomes oblivious to anything other than the beat.

Thursday, August 12, 6:00 p.m. at the Chelsea Market Passage on the High Line. For the most updated information, visit www.thehighline.org.

FESTIVALS: DREAM UP FESITVAL

That annual 800-pound gorilla known as FringeNYC will be getting some competition this year — in the form of the “Dream Up Festival.” This newbie theater fest started its virgin run on Aug. 8 and lasts until Sept. 5. Before the curtain comes down, “Dream Up” will have hosted 23 world premieres. True to the roots of its sponsoring organization (Theater for the New City), the offerings proudly display a distinct Lower East Side edge — and are presented by emerging and mid-career artists whose cultural contributions have the TNC stamp of approval. It all happens at their home base: 155 First Ave. (at 10th St.). Tickets range from $12 to $15. For more info, visit www.dreamupfestival.org or call 212-254-1109.
