1) The 8th Annual Dance Parade
For the past seven years, Dance Parade New York has become the world’s largest event to celebrate the diversity of dance.  We are well into production for our 8th Annual Dance Parade and are gathering over 10,000 dancers to celebrate more than 75 styles of dance and culture.
Get Ready!  On May 18th 2014, Dance Parade will boogie down Broadway in the heart of Manhattan, sashay through Union Square and leap across Saint Marks Place.  YOU can enable never seen before dance and choreography that highlight the human experience — everything from Ballet to Breakdance, Two-step to Dub-Step and African to Zydeco–all in dazzling outfits, with live bands, djs and decorated floats.
Dance Parade is for EVERYONE!
2) DanceFest after the Parade!
The parade culminates in Tompkins Square Park where DanceFest kicks off unforgettable performances on four stages–with dance lessons, roaming performers, experience dance booths and an epic dance party–all FREE to the public.
 
3) Community Engagement
With your support our charitable programs will bring dance to underserved schools, recreation and senior centers throughout New York City’s five boroughs.
In the past few months, we’ve already brought the joy of movement and rhythm to New Yorkers.  In September, we kicked off our season by throwing a House music party featuring Louie Vega and a host of other djs, presenting dance at New York’s largest holiday event — Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square and are offering weekly classes to Seniors in Manhattan.
In 2014, our Community Engagement programs will allow students to enjoy Family Fitness Winter workshops, six week Cultural Residencies and — new this year — “Ageless Action,” a program specifically designed to keep seniors moving!

If your school, community or senior center is interested in one of our popular education programs, click here for our Community Engagement brochure.

In keeping with tradition since 2008, all of our education programs, whether they are for students in schools, community or senior centers, end their programs with participation in the 8th Annual Dance Parade and DanceFest!
