Hi Friends,
This Friday DANCE-CON grooves through the streets of Bushwick to raise awareness about the historic hearing happening Monday April 8th at City Hall. Then celebrate with us at the National Arts Club on Tuesday as we step through history Dance Parade style!

Executive Director

Dance-Con: We gotta fight for our right to Boogie!
Calling all movers, shakers and expressionists!
The city's got us in a chokehold (with red tape, not dance moves) - zoning laws restrict dancing to only 20% of bars, clubs and restaurants. That's bananas!
So, Dance Parade & LegalizeDance.Org is throwing a roving dance party to raise awareness about the historic City of Yes hearing at City Hall on the following Monday.
Date: Friday, April 5th, 6pm-9pm
Location: We're starting the party at Alchemia / Crossroads (1087 Flushing Avenue)
Exchange: $10-$20 donation and get a silent disco headset there between 6-7PM;
Donations go toward offset bus, DJ and headset costs.
The Ride: Then, we dance along with Glinda the Good Bus, a party machine with a roof mounted sound system pumping out beats by DJ Ali Coleman and special guests!
Spread the word, tag your crew and let's show the city what NYC nightlife is all about!
Don't let DANCE get eclipsed by the Eclipse!

We've come so far! 20 years of advocating for more dance in NYC. From Dance Parade, to Community Engagement, to repealing the notorious cabaret laws, we are at a historical moment to reform racist era zoning laws!
When: Monday, April 8
Where: City Council Chamber at New York City Hall
Who: Dancers, Nightlife Patrons & Operators
Why: Having championed proposals through the City. Planning Commission, the City Council has put together this historic opportunity to modernize land-use laws that include allowing more dance in over 80% of NYC!
4,000+ have signed the petition!

Stepping Through History with Dance Parade
Join us as Dance Parade presents its advocacy roots to legalize dance by helping to reform New York City’s cabaret and zoning laws and the organization’s 18-year history of producing what has become New York’s largest dance and culture event: the annual Dance Parade & Festival.
The evening will feature performances by Yvonne Guterrez Flamenco, 2024 Grand Marshals Norman Siegel, Brenda Buffalino, and tap dance luminary Brenda Bufalino and 2024 Grand Marshal and preservationist of baile folklorico Martha Zarate and her company, Mazarte Dance Company, who will showcase a slice of the diverse footwork from dances of Northern Mexico, American Tap Dance, and where the styles intersect.
