Lastly, I understand that participation in Dance Parade New York is a privilege granted to us by the City of New York, and which will be granted to us in the future only thanks to Dance Parade participants’ exemplary civic behavior. I agree to make my utmost effort to ensure that Dance Parade is both fun and safe, and to leave nothing behind during or after Dance Parade in order to minimize cleanup demands. Additionally, Dance Parade reserves the right to cancel registration if it is determined that dance organizations are involved for political or commercial reasons not supporting dance. It's the Dance Parade and everyone dances!
