Join thousands of dancers as we explode down Broadway in the heart of Manhattan, sashay through Union Square and leap across Saint Marks Place. Once again our goal is to exceed 80 unique styles of dance and to be the world’s largest display of cultural diversity. The theme “Dance for Peace” will set a positive and joyous tone as we unify through a common passion for dance.
Never seen before dance genres 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. 
Do you belong to a Modern dance company, Contra group, Salsa group, Ballet School or are an EDM DJ?  Registering as a parade group is just $50 to move and groove before 75,000 live audience members and to be eligible for our Community Engagement programs in which we hire performaning groups and teaching artists througout the year. Scholarships are available to waive the fee and there’s no fee to apply to participate at DanceFest.
