RETURN TO THE STREETS:
We’re thrilled to return to the streets to produce New York City’s largest dance event live in-person! After two challenging years of the pandemic causing us to do our programs online, Dance Parade is pleased to create this 2021 Year-End campaign to raise critical funds for dance education. Beginning November 30, 2022 our campaign seeks to raise funds to enable Teaching Artists to bring the gift of dance to over two dozen schools and community centers. Won’t you join us in this global day of giving?
DANCE IN SCHOOLS: This year our $25,000 campaign on Facebook will help Dance Parade fund 10-week dance education programs that serves these schools as well as free classes in three languages:
- iSchool (9th Grade) Chelsea, Manhattan

STARS ON BROADWAY: Kids will end their programs with participation in the 16th Annual Dance Parade and then showcase their work on stage at DanceFest after the parade! For many, this will be an experience of a lifetime as most of these kids have never appeared on stage. Our 2022 theme Back to the Streets was chosen by the NYC Dance Community and celebrates the return to our outdoor signature event scheduled for Saturday May 21, 2022.
