About Dance Parade
FESTIVAL - MAY 17 2008 A great way to increase Press,
Education, Membership and Support for your organization
DANCE PARADE danceparade.orgIn May 2007 Dance Parade New
York brought together over 4000 dancers and 13 floats down
New York's Broadway and Fifth Avenue in the first-ever
parade and festival to celebrate all forms of
dance--everything from the ancient dances to present forms,
world cultures to club. The first year success showed that
Dance Parade can and should grow to be a positive force and
energetic expression of our diverse dance communities. On
Saturday May 17th 2008 we will once again join colorful
floats, live bands and DJ's to dance in the streets to
Contra, Disco, Clogging, Ballroom, Irish Step, Hip Hop,
Swing, Ballet, Japanese, Sufi, Samba and more - All forms
of dance are represented demonstrating that Dance is a
vibrant, expressive form of art. Individual dancers can
sign up free--Register your dance organization for $100
(scholarships available see attached scholarship
application) to offset insurance and production costs--your
website link will be seen by thousands of dance interested
folks and if you don't have a website, let us know and we
can program a webpage for you! To apply for a visa,
registered participants receive an official certificate of
registration signed by the President of DanceParade. Please
make arrangements as early as possible. Please note: All
participants in the Parade and Festival are responsible for
their own transportation, housing and other needs. We are
an all volunteer run Non-Profit Organization who seeks to
show that dance is an expressive and unifying 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.
