Dance Parade 2020


Saturday, May 16th (1-3pm)



Join the AMERICAN TAP DANCE FOUNDATION as we flap, rattle and cramp roll down the parade route for this 14th annual celebration of dance in NYC.

Check out the site: https://danceparade.org

This year we have expanded our participation by asking ATDF’s Artist in Residence and teacher Max Pollak to lead us in the parade and we will be accompanied by the Hungry Marching Band. Check them out: http://hungrymarchband.com/blog/   They are really great and ALSO a lot of fun!

Note: All ATDC YOUTH, TEEN & ADULT students, parents, teachers, dancers and choreographers can participate!  Please come wearing the ATDF T-Shirt and your tennis shoes. Everyone is welcome! If you are a parent, join us. We will put you to work handing out postcards for the American Tap Dance Center and upcoming events.
