Dance Parade ready to groove down Broadway
Get ready to move, New York.
More than 10,000 dancers will swing, tap and pirouette their way down Broadway this Saturday as part of the Eighth Annual Dance Parade and Festival.
Organizers said this year’s theme, “Be the Momentum,” aims to celebrate a shared love of dance.
“There’s an expression, ‘if it feels good, do it,’ and dance feels good,” the parade’s executive director, Greg Miller, said in a statement. “You can see that in all the smiling faces from one culture to the next.”
From ancient to modern, more than 77 dance styles and cultures will be represented during the parade.
If you go:
The parade begins on 21st Street and Broadway at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Dancers move down Broadway to a grandstand at Eighth Street and then east to Tompkins Square Park, where a festival will be held from 3 to 7 p.m.
