Last May over 155 groups expressed over 77 unique styles of dance and culture by parading their way down Broadway in the world's largest display of diversity! Twe;ve fabulously crafted floats gallantly made their way down Broadway from 21st Street down to University Place, swinging East on 8th Street and into Tompkins Square Park for DanceFest. This year we honored Savion Glover, Jawole Zollar and Hex Hector as Grand Marshals who could all be seen in the parade atop one of those beautiful floats!
Each year Dance Parade features a theme that is presented on ads, flyers, posters and t-shirts. Some of the popular ones in the past have been "One Parade, Many Cultures" "United We Dance" and "Be The Momentum". So far, more than 10 themes were nominated for 2015 and we have put the top 3 into Survey Monkey.
The top 3 themes are:
- Live Free and Dance
- Think Global, Dance Local!
- Around the World in 80 Styles
- OR suggest your own theme
