Dance Parade is New York's first ever parade and festival of such scope and scale. We are celebrating everything from Break dance to Ballet with Burning Man Spirit and Love Parade Energy. On Saturday May 19th 2007 we will join colorful floats, live bands and dj's to dance in the streets to Salsa, Contra, Disco, Clogging, Ballroom, Irish Step, Hip Hop, Swing, Tango, Ballet, Break dance, Japanese, Sufi, Samba and more - over 49 forms demonstrating that Dance is a vibrant, expressive form of art.

Our wonderful parade route starts at 32nd Street, heads down Broadway to Union Square, swings West to Fifth Avenue and triumphantly dances itself through Washington Square's memorial Arch. Inside the park we have a unique Dance Festival with many forms of performance and social dances on as many as four stages!

We are an all volunteer run Non-Profit Organization who seek to show that dance is an expressive form of art — Our aim is to educate the public on the wonderful health and cultural benefits of dance. In doing so, we aim to support and strengthen the role of dance in our culture.

NYC will finally see, hear, and feel a massive mobile celebration of dance music and culture in all its forms, from electronic beats to drum and dance troupes. With 50-plus sound systems, 100s of crews, over 6,000 registered dancers so far, from Herald Square all the way  
to Washington Square Park — followed by a huge getdown in the park with Kool Herc, Danny Tenaglia, and many many more — all making a big noise to free the beat and the feet in New York.
