Dear Parade & Festival Participants,
We want to thank you for joining us Saturday May 20th for the 17th Annual Dance Parade & Festival!
The weekend was bookended by beautiful weather on Friday and Sunday with a whole day of rain during Saturday's Parade and Festival. Executive Director, Greg Miller, emceed the ribbon cutting ceremony, explaining that unfortunately Manhattan parades don't have rain dates and went on to channel his inner Gene Kelly saying,
"Even under the rain, we are dancers. We are flexible and strong. We are dancers. Celebrating 50 years of hip-hop and over 100 unique styles of dance. We are dancers. We are from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures but we are united today in dance".
We would really love to hear your insights and ask you to fill out our brief survey here:
We hope to learn and grow, and most of all dance with you again!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for coming out, facing the rain, moving with us, and sharing your artistry with New York City.
Yours in Dance,
