The third annual New York City Dance Parade will bring nearly 5,000 dancers and scores of supporters to the streets of Manhattan on Saturday, May 16, 2009 in celebration of culture, community and the art of movement.
All are invited to join this kid-friendly event intended to unite, but also raise awareness of the importance of dance in the community. Registered dance groups already range from ballet to belly dance, B-boy to the rumba, and from salsa to swing.
In addition to the dance companies and individual dancers, colorful floats, live bands and DJs will waltz, tango and pirouette down Broadway from 32nd Street to Tompkins Square Park with a dance festival finale in the park.
Hundreds of volunteers, local business and several city agencies are cooperating in support of this immense project and are available for interviews.
