DANCE PARADE presents New York City's Third Annual Dance Parade!
All are invited to join us in a historic event demonstrating that dance truly is an expressive form of art. The third annual New York City Dance Parade will attract nearly 7,000 dancers and twice as many supporters to the streets of Manhattan on Saturday, May 16th in celebration of culture, community and the art of movement.
Performances by dance companies and individual dancers will range from Ballet to Breakdance, the Hustle to Club. Colorful floats, live bands and DJs will waltz, tango and pirouette down Broadway from 32nd Street, past Union Square, across Saint Marks Place and end at Tompkins Square Park with a dance festival finale in the park through sunset.
The parade will run from 1pm - 3pm and the festival from 3pm - 7pm. This is a free event.
Meanwhile, the streets are prepped... What are the cops expecting?
