7-8:30 Taste of the Dance Parade Theater Program
We are thrilled to return to our beloved Lower East Side Theater, Dixon Place. Attendees will be welcomed into the theater one hour prior to the start of the Taste of the Dance Parade show to mix and mingle with fellow guests, the performers and the Dance Parade team of volunteers. Snacks will be available along with a cash bar to quench your thirst. The Showcase offers you a ‘Taste of Dance Parade’ a celebration of dance and culture from all over the world, with a magical display of costumes, color and talent that makes its way down Broadway each May. Proceeds from this event will help aid in production costs for the 10th Annual Dance Parade and Festival as well as help to fund our Community Engagement Program which brings the excitement and energy of dance to under-resourced schools and community centers in New York City.
*All proceeds go to supporting our Education Program and The 11th Annual “Decade of Dance” Dance Parade NYC on May 20th.
