Get a front row seat to celebrate the most culturally diverse event in the world!
This year's theme, "MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE" celebrates the inclusion and diversity of dance on a city, national and global scale. Come May 18th, the theme helps us to recognize the value of dance in our vulnerable immigrant communities, on the performance stages of our most critically acclaimed venues, to our schools, senior centers, nightclubs, studios and in the streets. We are reminded of the value of the arts in everyday life, both as participant and the audience.
The parade will feature over 80 unique styles and cultures. Buying a Grandstand Seat is a great way to be apart of our effort to support dance in New York City. 100% of grandstand proceeds go to support Dance Parade, DanceFest and bringing teaching artists into schools, senior and community centers through our Community Engagement Program.
On Saturday, May 18, 2019 get the best seat on the parade route as 10,000 dancers stop and perform in front of this year's Grandstand! Watch over 150 dance organizations be announced by our emcee DJ BooshWheelz as they turn at the Parade's "Elbow" and dance their way to Tompkins Square Park for DanceFest. Bring your camera--there's no other event quite like this one!
The Grandstand will be Astor Place Plaza at 4th avenue (N/R trains to 8th Street or 6 train to Astor Place)
Seating begins at 1 PM
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.

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.
Our mission is to promote dance as an expressive and unifying art form by showcasing all forms of dance, educating the general public about the opportunity to experience dance and celebrate the diversity of dance.
