The three best things to do in New York today

Jillian Anthony

Party (quietly) at the Lincoln Center Local: Silent Disco at Coney Island 
Boardwalk bystanders will be none the wiser when they see you joyously dancing in total silence. With disco, Top 40 and salsa blasting into your headphones and instructors to show you the moves, you’ll be able to dance like nobody’s watching.
Snug Harbor Cultural Center, 1000 Richmond Terr, Brooklyn, 1:30pm, free

Get into the swing of things at a trapeze-based production of This is Not J.A.W.S. 
With training in acting, comedy and aerial performance, the members of Fight or Flight Theatre Company are not your standard New York ensemble. For the 40th anniversary of Jaws, they’re taking the Oceanside high jinks high up in the air and into totally absurd territory.
Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie St, 7:30pm; $18

Relive your favorite rockin' movie moments at Reeltalks: Rock Music in Film 
If you dance around the room to “Then He Kissed Me” every time you watch Adventures in Babysitting and know your Creedence Clearwater Revival even better than the Dude, you’ll love this discussion of iconic rock moments in film with The Wall Street Journal’s Jim Fusilli and resident film expert Scott Adlerberg.
Bryant Park Reading Room, W 42nd St between Fifth and Sixth Aves, 12:30pm, free
