“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.

Mike Israely, Chair of Dance Parade’s Finance Committee, was first introduced to Dance Parade by Board member Trevor Honchman.

Living in New York for over a decade, Michael now considers himself a ‘native New Yorker”. Having an extensive background in business and advertising, Michael is currently the Director of The Keiretsu Forum New York Tri-State Chapters, part of the worlds largest network of Angel Investors. 2011 will be Mike’s second year involved with Dance Parade.
