Ways to Dance with Sound

Each year Dance Parade gathers 200+ organizations, 10,000+ dancers and 70+ vehicles and floats.  We manage these logistics by offering the below sound and vehicle options.  Though higher budget options provide the most comprehensive sound for your dancers, low budget scenarios are also available:

A) Get paired with another group with same or similar dance genre: Free

Easiest and cheapest option usually for groups without budget for sound; (i.e if you are a tango group parade production team will place you behind another tango group that has sound); Deadline April 30, 2019.

B) Bring portable sound unit: Battery or generator powered: Free

 On a dolly, cart, or (non gasoline) cycle; Generally multiple speakers & generator powered are loudest

C) Rent portable Sound Pod ($250) - SOLD OUT

For 2019, we are pleased to work with Mobile Sound Staging, who has engineered a bluetooth weather-resistant speaker with 12 hour+ battery life.  The pods are engineered with a 1000watt Sound Box Speaker raised 8ft above the ground on a tripod with heavy duty wheels.  One speaker should be enough sound for 25-30 dancers, casting sound a good half block in every direction.

D) Register your own vehicle to transport sound (4/30/19 deadline has passed)

E) Order a Pre-Packaged Parade Float. Turnkey solution complete with advertising, sound system, tow-vehicle--Just show up and dance on this moving stage!  (4/30/19 deadline has passed)


Sound Patrol & Good Neighbor Policy:

However you participate, please be mindful of our Good Neighbor Policy and Sound Patrol who make ticket you for excessive sound. Repeated violations will result in removal from the parade. See video below for more information about this policy.
