When & Where
Dance Parade New York
Our mission is to promote dance as an expressive and unifying art form by showcasing all forms of dance, educating the general public about the opportunity to experience dance and celebrate the diversity of dance
In the age of strained budgets for the arts, we provide under-resourced schools and community centers with 10 week dance residencies. At the conclusion of their programs, these youth join the Dance Parade! On Saturday May 18, 2013, over 10,000 dancers will converge on the streets of New York City showcasing 75 forms of dance in a free outdoor dance parade and festival!
