NYCGO Logo Ten thousand dancers from 150 groups showcase 75 styles of dance in a joyously multicultural, musical parade down Broadway. Tap-dance legend and Tony winner Savion Glover, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, artistic director of African diaspora dance troupe Urban Bush Women, and remix master Hex Hector have been tapped to serve as grand marshals. The beautifully crafted floats, live bands and DJs, not to mention the battalions of dancers, will start from 21st Street at about 1pm, heading south through Union Square Park, and then east on 8th Street and St. Marks Place to Tompkins Square Park. There, the party continues with DanceFest, an afternoon of free dance performances, dance lessons and social dancing across four stages. For complete information visit danceparade.org.
