This past year has been really hard on all of us, including the tens of thousands of dancers we serve. As a service to the community, we are repeating our popular GRANDSTAND SHOW

Beginning at 6pm watch a curated selection of some of the best dance performances during the pandemic! Grand Stand Curator Jamila emcees and introduces creative performances and interviews choreographers that created these pieces during the Pandemic. At 7:45pm participate in the chat with questions to the dance makers and filmmakers ahead of the full version of Dance Parade's TV special "DANCE BRINGS US TOGETHER -- The Resilience of Dance Through The Pandemic" at 8pm. Without a stage, these performers still put on a show!
