Celebrate International Dance Day with Dance Parade New York
Sunday, April 29th 7-11pm
161A Chrystie Street, NYC 10002
In 1982 the United Nations, through UNESCO’s CID (Conseil International de la Danse) set out to promote and raise awareness of dance by marking each April 29th as International Dance Day. This observance unites millions of people around the world toward the advancement of this expressive art form. Beginning in 2008, Dance Parade, Inc. has joined this worldwide chorus by linking in the nation’s only parade and festival dedicated solely to the recognition, celebration and promotion of the diversity of dance in all its forms as an inclusive and unifying human cultural and artistic expression.
Each year Dance Parade hosts a FUN-raiser on International Dance Day that both raises the awareness of dance in general, and the necessary funds for the annual Parade down Broadway in May, and its culminating Festival at Tompkins Square Park. Dixon Place will host this year’s event on Sunday, April 29, 2012, from 7PM to 11PM.
Guests to this event will enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment that reflects the diversity of age, ethnicity and genre to be found among dancers in NYC. The featured events highlight dance groups who have registered for the upcoming parade and allows event guests a preview of what is to come – a “taste of Dance Parade!” On April 29, these will include dancers from 8 to nearly 80, representing troupes who dance in forms originating on 5 different continents and various islands.Join us in celebrating this momentous occasion.
