Help end the Cabaret Law - Sign the Petition!
Dance Parade began as a protest to NYC Cabaret Law. Though the licensing requirement was repealed in 2017, dancing is still mostly absent due to zoning laws.
Last week, Council Member Keith Powers, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, and Council Member Mark Levine proposed a resolution to repeal Cabaret Law zoning regulations so establishments would be regulated based on capacity of venue, rather than zoning.  (Read full Press Release check out Legalize Dance NYC)
Thank you Gabriel, R.I.P.
Sadly, our dear friend and Dance Parade Steering Committee member, Gabriel Kutik, has passed away. Gabriel helped run our Grand Stand in Astor Plaza for over ten years. His selflessness, humor and passion for dance reflects why Dance Parade is so precious.
To show his love and respect for dance, Gabriel always sported a necktie, even while breaking on the dance floor.
The Kutik family generously has requested donations in his memory be directed to Dance Parade's Education fund.
