Get Your Dance Shoes On: From Samba to Circus, the Dance Parade Shimmies Downtown

Friday, May 20, 2011

Officers of the NYDP — that's the New York Dance Parade — will be issuing citations on Saturday for citizens they see who are refusing to get down.

That's because some 8,000 dancers and 176 different dance troupes of varying styles will be dancing their way from 22nd St. to Tompkins Square Park for the fifth annual Dance Parade.

From Nepalese sherpa dances to pole dances straight out of the club, the parade represents a kaleidoscope of nationalities, traditions and movement styles.

The New York Dance Parade starts at 1 P.M. on Saturday and will culminate in a dance party in Thompkins Square Park. Check out a video of what to expect below.
