At this year's parade and festival, Dance Parade will celebrate its 17th year under the theme "Beyond the Zone" with 10,000 dancers from 160+ dance organizations who will present over 100 unique styles of dance down Avenue of Americas, parade across West 8th Street, perform before the Grand Stand at St. Marks Place before reaching Tompkins Square Park.
"Our theme, 'Beyond the Zone' acknowledges New York City Mayor Eric Adam's 'City of Yes' campaign to reform antiquated Zoning laws related to dance," says Dance Parade's Executive Director Greg Miller. "Updating zoning ordinances in New York City follows the 2017 repeal of the NYC Cabaret License law that restricted dance to a small number of venues licensed to allow dancing. Dance Parade has always been a supporter, as well as an advocate, for dance."
