Volunteer Spotlight
October, 2011
Dawn Paap, Marketing Team

“Need a way to connect with a community of great artists in NYC? Start here! You’ll be amazed by who you meet.” ~ Dawn

Dance Parade, Inc. is a volunteer supported 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.

10tecomai Yosakoi Dance Project lead The 5th Annual Dance Parade in honor of JAPAN!

05/21/2011

To honor the victims of the all too recent Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami, Dance Parade has chosen The 10tecomai Yosakoi Dance Project to lead The 5th Annual Dance Parade this year. Lining up at 21st Street and Broadway, the group which uniquely blends Traditional and Contemporary Japanese Dance will be the very first of our 160 groups to make their way downtown at 1pm. 10tecomai recently lent their talents to our March fundraiser at Alpha Fusion Restaurant in March, their passionate performance just days after the Japanese tragedy rocked the world. When trying to decided which of our illustrious groups should be first in line, the answer was not hard to find at all. Please make sure you get to the parade on time for this will be a memorable and honorable moment in today’s milestone event.
