With over 10,000 dancers showcasing 100+ unique styles of dance, The 17th Annual Dance Parade is New York City's largest dance event! Come May 20th we celebrate "Beyone the Zone", a flow state that dancers feel that helps all of us through challenging problems.

Buying a Grandstand Seat is a great way to be apart of our effort to support dance in New York City.  100% of  Grand Stand proceeds go to support the artists, not only in the Parade and Post-Parade Festival "DanceFest" but supports teaching artists in 15+ schools, senior and community centers through our Community Engagement Programs.

Watch over 150 dance organizations as they are presented as the parade flows on to Tompkins Square Park for DanceFest. Bring your camera--there's no other event quite like this one!


The Grand Stand will be Astor Place Plaza at 4th avenue (N/R trains to 8th Street or 6 train to Astor Place)


Seating begins at 11:30 AM


This location is perfect for viewing the parade and is within walking distance of DanceFest, the post-parade festival at Tompkins Square Park. Our Master of Ceremonies will announce each group and all dancers will perform in front of the Grandstand.

Reason: Funds raised from Grand Stand seating will support the cost of Dance Parade & Festival.

We will boogie our way down Broadway, hula, swing and Irish step our way past Union Square and into University Place. At Eighth Street we Salsa, Tango and Waltz East into Saint Marks Street. Our House, Techno and Disco floats will have afternoon shoppers wigglin as they watch us get down in the heart of the East Village. A straight shot from there brings us to DanceFest in Tompkins Square Park.  At DanceFest we will come together and celebrate watching free dance performances, be able to take free dance lessons and enjoy a Dance Party.

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.
