Rain or shine, but I'm hoping for shine, on Saturday you'll find me at New York City's third annual Dance Parade.
Beginning at 1 pm on 27th Street, some 4,600 dancers--doing everything from African to ballroom to Bulgarian to ecstatic to hip-hop to Middle Eastern to Zydeco and then some--will step, swing, shake, leap, and boogie their way down Broadway. We'll end up at Tompkins Square Park for a dance festival with free performances, lessons, and dance party (3-7 pm).
I'll be contra-dancing in the parade with Country Dance New York (cdny.org).
