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.
Funds raised from grandstand 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 will 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.
