All vehicles and floats will be inspected at 11AM and drivers with Drivers License and Proof of Insurance should be available and in their vehicles at that time. All drivers should be behind the wheel, ready to drive a full 30 minutes before step-off time. We have a very full vehicle line-up and it is very important to have drivers ready when vehicles leave 22nd street so that the parade doesn’t get delayed.

There will be staff on both the dancer and vehicle streets to help you find your place in the line of march.
Groups with vehicles will be assisted in the line up in the correct order based on their Parade Order # on 22 Street. Keep in mind that some numbers might be skipped, not all groups have vehicles
The Parade will start when the PARADE START CAPTAIN “DANIEL” signals for the first groups to cross
VEHICLES AND FLOATS:
Dancers must remain on floats at all times. Spacers will assist with maintaining the safety of dancers on the ground.
No items may be thrown off floats; please hand anything directly to spectators.
PARADE STARTING LINE:
21st St and Broadway. Dancers and vehicles will be integrated (“zippered”) at this point.
PARADE ROUTE (Refer to Map at DanceParade.Org)
-Parade Route proceeds south on Broadway to Union Square, through Union Square West, continuing south to University Place.
-There is one block of cobblestone between 14th & 15th streets, watch your step.
-The Parade will then turn east on Eighth Street, which becomes Saint Marks Place and leads straight to Tompkins Square Park.
-Dancers will pass the Grandstand in Astor Place Plaza between Lafayette and 4th Avenue
-It will take your group between 1.5-2 hours to get through the whole parade route.
SPACERS are perhaps the most important of all Volunteer Staff; they keep the pace of the parade and are integral to your success on the route. Spacers will be interacting with dance groups closely as they maintain the distance between groups and the timing of the Parade.
2017 OPENING CEREMONY

DANCING ON THE ROUTE:
All groups are given the option of performing a 40 second choreographed piece in front of the Grandstand at Astor Place Plaza (8th Street/Saint Marks between Lafayette Avenue and 4th Avenue)
If you DO have a 40 second (or less) choreographed piece please enter the area in front of the grandstand perform your routine and promptly continue on the parade route. It will be timed and you are expected to comply with this.
If you DO NOT have a 40 second (or less) choreographed piece please move through the grandstand where you can wave at the spectators in the grandstand.
The GRANDSTAND will have Emcee Jerry Goldman who announces each group. Groups will not be judged, spectators will include city officials and other Dance Parade VIPs. Tickets may be purchased from a link on our homepage at www.danceparade.org

-All sound needs to go off on Saint Marks midway between 1st Avenue & Avenue A.
-Our greeters team will have a “PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR SOUND” sign signalling the end.
-Groups dance straight into the Park from Saint Marks Place, entering from Avenue A (west
side of the park) At this point all vehicles must turn off their sounds as soon as they hit Avenue A.
-Vehicles will turn north on Avenue A and stop between 11 & 12 Street for vehicle breakdown (if needed).
-10th Street is a two way street and either side of 10th Street can be used for parking.
-Dancers riding on floats will disembark at Avenue A between 11th & 12th street.

PARADE FORMATION ORDER:
The order has been determined based on Festival Participation and having groups that need to share sound together. If you have sound in the parade and the group in front or behind you does not, please welcome them to dance with you!
Note: Following order is subject to change, please check our website prior to parade day.
The Parade will end at Tompkins Square Park, where the post-parade DanceFest will take place, complete with a DJ’ed dance party, a teaching area with dance classes, “Experience Dance” booths, site specific performances and dance performances on two stages.
The performance times indicated below represent the final assignments per the curation committee. Groups are expected to check in with the stage manager 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time on stage. There will be a green room next to each Stage. Please be aware that the schedule may fluctuate slightly due to unforeseen circumstances. Groups need to bring their music to the stage manager when they check in. We suggest both an mp3 accessible file (Ipod, mp3 player, flash drive, etc) as well as on a CD as a back-up.

THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Costumes! Remember, parades are spectacles – let’s give the audience a show! However, please remember that this is an all-inclusive, family-friendly event and we want to highlight ourselves and our love of dance in the most positive ways. If you are not wearing your costume to the parade consider how you will change into it.
- Weather contingencies: The forecast is Partly Cloudy and 67 degrees. Wear sunscreen, head covering, towels to wipe that sweat off, plastic poncho, etc.
- Comfortable shoes. You will more than likely be on your feet dancing the entire day. Get ready!
- Water (and something to carry it in if you want your hands free).
- A banner to lead your group and/or your group’s promotional materials. Although you
cannot display your items unless you sponsor an “Experience Dance” booth, you are welcome to hand out your literature along the route
- Something/someone to manage your group’s belongings (if they can’t be locked into a car or stored on a float) as you travel on the route
- The formation area will have two bathrooms and so will the park.
- Most of the businesses in the area open at 10AM. Please be respectful of
their livelihoods by remaining in the formation areas.
- The parade is about celebrating diversity and inclusion, and experiencing discoveries as a community. We encourage you to share your work and message with others and take full advantage of the resources that so many talented and dedicated dancers bring together for one magical day!
