Warning: COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, expressed or implied, that those attending a Dance Parade event will not be exposed to COVID-19. As per current Federal Center for Disease and Control recommendations, we recommend (but do not require) all participants over the age of five to be fully vaccinated in order to attend our events.

We will continue to monitor the health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and working with city, state and federal agencies to adjust this policy as needed.


The pandemic has affected us all and has made us appreciate the things we hold dear. That’s why we are dedicating this year’s #GivingTuesday on November 30, 2021 to our Teaching Artists that bring the gift of dance to schools and community centers. Won’t you join us in this global dav of giving?

Our 2021 theme Back To The Streets was chosen by the NYC Dance Community and celebrates our love of dance and our values of diversity, cultural equity and inclusion. We are scheduled to dance live on Broadway Saturday May 22nd, 2021 in the city’s largest dance event to showcase over 100 unique styles of dance.

In these past two years we overcame the challenges of dancing with the pandemic and delivered over 2500 youth and 300 adults with free classes online. Our programs funded teaching artists who danced with kids and older folks alike to support healthier, happier lives.

100% of your contribution will go to the artists and means so much to us and we are grateful for every tax-deductible donation, no matter how small!
