Anticipating 1,000 people dancing-in-place from around the world, parade organizers have lined up family-friendly fun and movement joy in DJ-lead dance rooms, free dance classes with top professionals, dance-offs between participants, flashmob, free dance classes, and will announce winners of Dare-to-Dance challenge. which invited house-bound choreographers to submit new work to win cash prizes.

In previous years, the Dance Parade sees St. Mark's Place as a main route while the subsequent Dancefest takes place in Tompkins Square Park.
Instead, you can enjoy a parade of stupidly drunks in and around the park.
I enjoy the spectacle of the dance parade but I'd rather listen to our resident jazz band by the fountain than competing sound systems at max volume on a day like today.
Oh The Dance Parade and Tompkins Square event is one of my favorites -- there is so much joy in the air and it's a taste of what community events used to be like decades ago. Thyy only give them a 4 hour permit and it brings in dozens of styles of dance and culture.
