Individuals who have learned to endure and persevere through the storms of hardships are those who can dance in the rain during a storm."

The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs.

Tomorrow, Saturday May 19, we’ll make history — rain or shine — as 10,000 dancers light up New York City with 83 Styles of dance!

At 21st & Broadway, catch the ribbon cutting ceremony starting at 12:30pm, with all the advocates that have worked hard to repeal the 1926 Cabaret Law: Norman Siegel, Mercedes Ellington, Josephine Baker and performance by the Skin Dance Company. Then at 1pm, Grand Marshals Camille A. Brown, DJ Doc Martin, Council Member Rafael Espinal and Mickela Mallozzi cut the ribbon to kick off the day’s theme, "The Cabaret of Life!"

Passing the Grandstand in Astor Place, Emcee’s Jerry Goldman and Rhina Valentin add color to the already colorful display of culture and diversity. As the parade ends at Avenue A in Tompkins Square Park, DanceFest celebrates dance like never before. Pirate Ship DJs, Choreography on Main, Family and Aerial stages as well as dance lessons by the city’s best teaching artists. And there’s the Cabaret AfterLife Party too…Read on and feel joy…

Because it WON’T be a royal wedding – It WILL be a Unity through Dance!

WooWooWooWoo! NYDP DANCE POLICE, responding to the call to BOOGIE!!
Commissioner Chauncey and Lieutenant Jamee are back once again to lead the team of jolly officers ticketing "bystanders" for NOT dancing! A parody of the Guiliani administration’s actual Dance Police known then as the "Cabaret Task Force" that fined and shuttered bars and clubs throughout New York City, our NYDP officers joyfully inspire dance throughout the parade and festival. And YOU can too: Sign up to volunteer a six hour shift:

Parade A 9am – 3pm
Parade B 11am – 5pm
Festival B 2pm – 8pm

On a serious note, NYDP officer Jackie Cohen, our Sound Czar, will the Sound Patrol team with decibel readers to monitor ampified sound throughout the parade and festival.

In return for a shift distributing programs and tickets, NYDP officers (like our entire band of 150+ volunteers) receive a T-shirt, NYDP hat, free entry to our After Party with pizza and hugs galore! For more info, check our website here.

(Also sign up if you just want to pitch in, support Dance Parade and DanceFest wearing a regular CABARET OF LIFE CREW shirt!)

TONITE! Love & Respect : A tribute to and fundraiser for Carlos Sanchez

168 Borinquen Pl, Brooklyn
6pm – midnight

LOVE & RESPECT, A Musical Tribute and Benefit for Carlos Sanchez

François K
DJ Spinna
Bamboozle (Soul Clap)
Naeem Johnson
Stormin Norman
Shawn Dub
Trevor Fox

Hosted by: NIni EternalSol Juliano, Ramik Roberts, Michael Forde, Kenny Carpenter, Don Welch, Sammy Rock, Aurra Fox, Jon Martin, Danilo Braca, Raven Fox, Fred Pierce and Soulfinger Sam


Love & Respect is a fitting title for it reflects, 40-plus years and counting of being a staple of the NYC underground dance community. A DJ/programmer who credits these storied masters Tee Scott, Grand Master Flowers, Nicky Siano and Paul Batty as his mentors; he has been instrumental in shaping the palette of dance music and dance floors as we know it today. Carlos has also been a crucial behind-the-scenes figure, from the lectern as Professor Sanchez at Pace University with his World Music/The Underground course, manager/buyer at Disco-Rama, Downtown Records & The Eight-Ball Shop educating generations of DJ’s. Carlos was elemental to programming the way we move at storied venues like Leviticus, Save The Robots and lists goes on and on. We cannot forget that his contributions behind the keys & mixing board producing underground gems that have glorified dance floors and our hearts. Hence we give you an opportunity to show a little Love & Respect for Carlos Sanchez

On a more somber note, the motivation for putting this event together is to serve as a fundraiser for Carlos. He has been diagnosed with Kidney failure and shortly will be going through dialysis awaiting a suitable donor for transplant. I don’t have to tell you how medical expense and after care can bankrupt a person in these circumstances. With that said the prognosis for his recover is good. The intent was to raise funds to support and position him mentally with spiritual & emotion support; that will be necessary for him to weather this impeding storm. With the short list of DJs selected to participate, we will have a powerful celebration of the lifetime achievement and work of Carlos Sanchez.

Suggested donation $20.00
