What a great turnout for the Dance Parade February Social!! Thanks to everyone who pitched in to create such an epic party last month–Our February social was a flawless success! See some fantastic pictures of the event on Facebook.
Special thanks to Nikki Creary for booking the evening with Alavaro, manager of Sapphire Lounge. His two bartenders were pros and the coat check girl Kayla turned out to be a professional dancer and wants to volunteer for DP!
Our all-star volunteers for the evening were DJ McDonald (Volunteer Coordinator and IDD Curation Lead), Crystal Lee at the door, Bobby Speakerwire, Gosha (STEPS! E-Newsletter sign-ups) and Chauncey (Stage Management).
We also got our groove on with the musical stylings of DJ Kolt, who kept us dancing on the dance-floor.
Our “Taste of the Dance Parade” brand would not be special without their creative energy. We must thank LA Kilpatrick and Teddie Yohay for helping to curate the evening and to get our dancers to come out and perform:
- Jamie Marie Hannigan & Carol Ann Suddeath from Stage Stars
- K.Shoy Entertainment
- T.R.U.E. Dance Company
- NYC Bhangra
Emcee Luis Vargas graced us with his eloquent charm introducing everyone professionally and getting people involved in the event.
SAVE THE DATE for our next event is Thursday March 29th at Dance Manhattan. We’ll start off the evening with an all team meeting 6 to 8:30, which will be followed by a variety of dance performances and a party afterward.
