ABOUT YOUR PARADE PARTICIPATION

Groups with compelling artistic presentations may be selected to present 40 seconds of their dance at the Astor Place Grand Stand and may be provided a stipend. If you would like to be considered please provide a video link and if password protected, include the password after the link (i.e. http:youtube.com/abclink password = "sunshine")
Be specific. For example, instead of entering "Bolivian", enter "Bolivian Carporales" or "Bolivian Tinkus". We are looking to present New York City with the world's largest display of cultural diversity!
This number can change. For planning purposes, we just want to know what maximum size your group might grow to.

If yes, you will be given the option to upload your organization's logo along with a link to order from our online store with color, style and size options. T-shirts are $30, including shipping, and will be printed with your logo on the front and with the official logo, date & theme for 2022. Orders shipped within the United States can be sent in bulk to one address or you can distribute the link so that your team can purchase individually. (above image example is from 2021)
If no music, we will try to place you with another group that has music similar to your dance style
Generally, groups with choreography and costumes answer "No" while groups wanting to expand their communities answer "Yes"

Our Parade Committee creates Pre-Packaged Float rentals to serve as moving stages:

Floats are available in 3 sizes and come complete with advertising, decorations, insurance, installed audio equipment and tow vehicle operated by a licensed driver. Just hop on and dance! (additional fees apply - contact floats@danceparade.org to request details)

POST PARADE DANCE FESTIVAL "DANCEFEST"


We invite the groups of artistic excellence to perform on stage. There is no additional fee for filling out this section and we actually pay stipends to those teaching and performing artists chosen by our Curatorial Committee. You must be in the Parade to participate in DanceFest 2022, our post-parade festival in Tompkins Square Park. If accepted, you'll be notified by the festival committee in April.

DanceFest's Curation Committee is currently a team of five dance-industry professionals with extensive experience in many forms of dance. The Committee is interested in presenting all dance forms and genres, including culturally-specific dance forms and dance-theater in addition to classical and contemporary choreography. Artist submissions that contain an audience engagement element are also welcome.

DanceFest strives to present artistic excellence and cultural diversity. Stage A (Main) and Stage B (Family) stages are 20ft x 20ft stages with a green room and portasan. These performances tend to be 3-8 minutes in length. The Social Stage is our party area and designed for club and circus performances. Site specific performances will occur throughout the park and feature performances exceeding 60 minutes for contemporary, folkloric and cultural dances.

You can login at another time up until the April 1st 2022 deadline to complete the DanceFest application however early applications have an increased chance for placement.
Paid performance and teaching opportunities at DanceFest after the parade are offered only to Dance Parade participants.
