Each year, Dance Parade selects various individuals from all corners of the Dance Community to honour for their perseverance, impact, contribution and uniqueness they have represented and supplied throughout their formidable careers. These recognized individuals are chosen by Dance Parade for their contribution to a particular genre of dance.
One of this year’s confirmed Grand Marshals is 4 time nominated and Grammy Award winning DJ, producer, songwriter and composer Louie Vega (Masters at Work, Elements of Life). For over two decades, Vega has influenced dance music, and the music world in general. He has worked with artists like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Tito Puente, Black Eyes Peas, and more.
“After years in the studio, clubs and DJing what makes my heart beat on the floor is when I see live and in front the reactions of people when they are dancing,” says Vega.
