Volunteer Spotlight : Natasha Grigoriev

Dance Parade, Inc. is a completely volunteer run non-profit organization.  It is the dedication, expertise and rhythm of these brave few that are solely responsible for the success of the event and all the background work that goes on all year long leading up to the parade and festival. Every month, we choose a different volunteer to spotlight.  We ask them a few questions to let you know who they are, where they’ve come from and where they see themselves in the future.


“join DP team and change the World!”





Natasha first stumbled upon Dance Parade as a Dance Parade participant.  Now, she works with Mike Israely as Dance Parade Treasurer. Natasha took her very first dance class three years ago learning how to dance in House style. Currently, she is a dance student at Peridance recently beginning her second year specializing in Modern, House, Vogue and Waacking. These are dances she loves to watch as well as participate in. We asked Natasha a few questions about her experiences with Dance Parade and the dance community in general.

If you could share the stage with anyone in history famous or not, living or deceased, a trained dancer or not, performing a routine choreographed by yourself…who would it be?

Bruce Lee

What does the Dance Parade slogan “one parade, many cultures” mean to you?

Diversity and unity brought together

If you could pick a Grand Marshall for this year’s parade who would it be?

Ejoe Wilson, a legendary House dancer

If you could pick another country or place to hold a Dance Parade and Festival….which would it be?

Moscow in Russia

Volunteering at a non profit organization can at times be daunting and frustrating with limited personnel and limited funding….what is it that keeps you coming back for more

The sense of being a part of a shared passion for Dance

What salesman pitch would you use to attract a new volunteer into the ‘cult’ that is Dance Parade?

Make people dance, make people smile, create a positive energy – join DP team and change the World!
