Dancers will move to the beat of their own drum at the 2nd Annual New York City Dance Parade this Saturday (May 17), which has 5,000 dancers busting a move from Harold Square to Thompkins Square Park, where a huge dance party will take place.
The parade invites dancers of all types to shake their groove thing, and will include salsa, swing, hip-hop, and belly dancing.
But theres one style thats been stripped of the chance to participate.
Parade spokesperson Fran Kirmser says, Theres no exotic dancing allowed.
Though Kirmser says dancing down the street will be a challenge, shes excited to feel the energy from the dancers.
She explains, Its a really exciting time for dance with shows like Dancing with the Stars and [Randy Jackson Presents Americas Next] Dance Crew becoming so popular. This parade is gonna be exactly like that scene in Fame where they all dance in the streets.
