On Saturday May 16th the 14th Annual Dance Parade and Festival goes Virtual! Dance Parade is for everyone and now it’s accessible everywhere.

Join thousands of professional dancers and plain ‘ol dance moms, kids, teens and older adults as we boogie down to DJs. Register for the FREE virtual parade here.

Responding to the Census

The 2020 Census is happening now. You can complete your questionnaire online, by phone, or by mail.

SHARE:

Your Invitation To Respond

The time is now. Help shape your future, and your community’s future, by responding to the 2020 Census.

Most households received their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census between March 12 – 20. These official Census Bureau mailings will include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the Census online.

In addition to an invitation to respond, some households will receive a paper questionnaire (sometimes known as the census form). You do not need to wait for your paper questionnaire to respond to the Census.

The 2020 Census is for everyone.

Please complete your form online, by phone, or by mail when your invitation to respond arrives. Visit my2020census.gov to begin.

How To Respond

The 2020 Census will ask a few simple questions about you and everyone who is or will be living with you on April 1, 2020.

For the first time, you can choose to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. Find out more about each of these methods below:

Please note that if you are responding online, you must complete the census in one sitting, as you don’t have the ability to save your progress. See the questions the census asks here.

If you do not receive an invitation to respond from the Census Bureau, you may respond online or visit our Contact Us page to call our phone line.

Who Should Respond

The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the United States and its five territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

One person should respond for each home. That person must be at least 15 years old. They should live in the home or place of residence themselves and know general information about each person living there. (For more information, visit Questions Asked.)

Please note: If you live in American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, or the U.S. Virgin Islands, the process for completing the census will be 100% paper-based and led by Census takers. Visit Counting the Island Areas for more information.

Everyone Counts

The Census Bureau has specific operations and processes in place to count everyone, including those in group living situations such as college dorms, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons.

Who Should Be Counted and Where?

You should be counted where you are living and sleeping most of the time as of April 1, 2020. If you are responding for your home, count everyone who lives and sleeps there most of the time as of April 1, 2020. This includes young children, foster children, roommates, and any family members or friends who are living with you, even temporarily.

Please note that if someone is staying with you temporarily on April 1 due to the COVID-19 situation, they should be counted where they usually live. This includes college students, who should still be counted at school, even if they are home early because of the COVID-19 situation. If they live in student housing, the college will count them. If they live off campus, they should respond for the off-campus address and include any roommates or other people living there.

If someone is staying with you on April 1 who doesn’t have a usual home elsewhere, please include them in your response.

People in some living situations—including students, service members, and people in health care facilities—may have questions about how to respond or where they should count themselves. You may also have questions if you are moving, have multiple residences, or have no permanent address.

For more information, please visit Who to Count.

Language Support

You can complete the census online or by phone in 13 different languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Japanese.

In addition, bilingual invitations and paper questionnaires in English and Spanish will be sent to select areas of the country.

To help you respond, the Census Bureau also offers webpages and guides in 59 non-English languages, including American Sign Language, as well as guides in Braille and large print. Visit Language Support to learn more.

TEAM SPOTLIGHT: Meet Ali Coleman!

In each issue of our STEPS! Newsletter we try to cast the Spotlight on one of our awesome team members to find out more about where they came from and to suss out their connection to dance and supporting the Dance Parade team.  In this issue, we put the spotlight on Ali Coleman.

Hi, Ali. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk with us.

 

 

 

What is your current role with Dance Parade?

My current role with Dance Parade is helping to coordinate Sponsorship. For me, I’ve been involved coordinating the House Coalition along with Luis Vargas for 14 years and consider Dance Parade as the Super Bowl of all my events each year!  Having run an ad agency with a lot of nightlife industry contacts, I’m pyshced to join Dance Parade’s Steering Committee, many of whom I’ve known for years.

 

What are you up to when you’re not helping with Dance Parade?

I am a veteran NYC DJ, party organizer & promoter and Nightlife Advocate.

 

 

What is your favorite style of dance to watch? to participate in? 

I Love to watch all styles of dance, but I would say that Pasodoble is my favorite to watch…such power in the movement! My favorite to participate in is ‘Freestyle’…no structure, just free movement.

 

Check out this video if you would like to know more about Pasodoble!

(sadly we didn’t catch Ali Coleman dancing to it..just yet!)

 

What is your dance background or interest in dance? 

I’ve always been an avid dancer. I had my 1st dance performance on stage at the age of 5 in my elementary school’s talent show. For me dance is akin to breathing…without dance there is no life!

 

If you could share the stage with anyone in history famous or not, living or deceased, a trained dancer or not, performing a routine choreographed by yourself…who would it be? 

The Nicholas Brothers, definitely!

 

Last year we honored immigrants and indiginous dance with “Movement of the People”. The year before, we celebrate the repeal of the Cabaret Law with the theme “The Cabaret of Life” — What does the 2020’s theme “Dance Without Borders ” mean to you? 

Dance Without Boarders confirms what I’ve said for many years now.. I believe that anywhere we go on earth there is music and there are people dancing to that music.

 

What dance group or dance style are you most looking forward to seeing this coming year in the parade? 

That’s a hard one….Dance Parade is like eating Sashimi…so many spectacular dance styles…impossible to pick just one

 

If you could choose a Grand Marshal for this year’s parade….who would it be? 

Francois K.

 

If you could pick another country to hold a Dance Parade and Festival….which would it be? 

Germany, Amsterdam…Japan would be phenomenal!!

 

 

Working for a non profit organization can at times be daunting and frustrating with limited personnel and funding….what is it that keeps you coming back for more and more? 

Dance Parade encompasses everything that I believe at my core. It involves all cultures sharing in one of our most ancient communal activities! It’s one of my favorite days of the year!!

 

Describe a special memory you have from Dance Parades past? 

One of my special memories is of the very 1st parade…I remember being very excited for that day to arrive, and didn’t even dance in the 1st parade. Instead I stood on the corner of 5th Ave between 8th street & Washington Square (north) to capture the parade on video!! Just thinking about it now has a big smile on my face!

 

What pitch would you use to attract a new volunteer onto the Dance Parade team?

Dance Parade is absolutely the most fun you’ll ever have working!!!

YuyaoLing_Dance_Parade_Grandstand

In the coming months, we are inspired by our 2020 theme chosen by the New York City Dance Community.

Our theme Dance Without Borders underscores our commitment to celebrate diversity, cultural equity and inclusion.  Dance Without Borders emphasizes that dance transcends borders—whether that be defined by the age or capabilities of our bodies, politics, race, creed, gender, income or country–None of that is needed for the artistry and passion found in dance.

We will celebrate Dance Without Borders by coming together Saturday May 16th, 2020 in the city’s largest dance event to showcase over 100 unique styles of dance.

Last year, with your help, we served over 600 youth and 120 seniors with free classes and a chance to participate in the Dance Parade. Our programs funded teaching artists who danced with kids and seniors to support healthier, happier lives.

The free education programs, Parade and Festival don’t just happen by themselves– So, this year, as you get ready to enjoy our Spring events – please, don’t just dance, support us financially if you can.

Your contribution means so much to us and we are grateful for every tax-deductible donation, no matter how small.
