8937 Dancers, 158 Dance Organizations, 50 Dance Styles --- Join Us Now!
In May 2007 Dance Parade New York brought together over 4000 dancers and 13 floats down New York's Broadway and Fifth Avenue
in the first-ever parade and festival to celebrate all forms of dance--everything from African to Zydeco, Belly to Break dance
and Salsa to Swing. The first year success showed that Dance Parade can and should grow to be a positive force and energetic
expression of our diverse dance communities.
On Saturday May 17th 2008 we will once again join colorful floats, live bands and dj's to dance in the streets to Contra,
Disco, Clogging, Ballroom, Irish Step, Hip Hop, Swing, Ballet, Japanese, Sufi, Samba and more - over 50 forms demonstrating
that Dance is a vibrant, expressive form of art.
Our wonderful parade route starts at 32nd Street, heads down Broadway to Union Square, swings West to Fifth Avenue and
triumphantly dances itself through Washington Square's memorial Arch. Inside the park we have a unique Dance Festival with
many forms of performance and social dances on as many as four stages!
We are an all volunteer run Non-Profit Organization who seek to show that dance is an expressive and unifying form of art--Our
aim is to educate the public on the wonderful health and cultural benefits of dance. In doing so, we aim to support and strengthen
the role of dance in our culture.
