We’re “dancing in the street” and on the stage at the annual Dance Parade! The parade route boogies down Broadway to Tompkins Square Park, NYC to celebrate the performing arts and multi-cultural fun!
Dancing divas, colorful costumes, and diversity rule the day in New York City!
Here I am with the beautiful Red Silk Dancers – a Chinese-American Company that performs traditional and contemporary dance. http://redsilkdancers.weebly.com/
Pure Onyx Movement Dr. Sue
Brooklyn is in the house – with Pure Onyx Movement – an American company that celebrates its African/International roots, Belly Dancing, and Inter-Generational Sisterhood!
Director Jeannie Mitchell says, “We breathe together.”
Here I am with Pure Onyx Movement!
Navatman Dancers & Dr. Sue
Is Bollywood calling? Navatman is a South Asian Dance and Music Company. The troupe and school is based in New York and trains dancers in traditional Indian performance styles.
Here I am with the Navatman dancers. There are two lovely ladies and two utterly charming children.
Dancing Wheels & Dr. Sue
Diversity means more than multi-culturalism. It extends to the differently abled – like members of The Dancing Wheels Company and School.
Director Mary Verdi-Fletcher, may be in a wheelchair, but her passion for dance, vision of possibilities, and sheer capability have created a company and school where thousands of children and adults with and without disabilities study and perform together.
