We know you like to shake what your mama gave you at your favorite watering hole, but did you know that “social dancing” in bars is technically illegal without a permit? Fight the man, Footloose-style, at the Eighth Annual New York Dance Parade & Festival, which was created to defend public dancing as a constitutional right. More than 10,000 dancers from across the globe will sashay, B-boy and conga their way along the route—stopping at the Union Square grandstand on the way to perform everything from ethnic folk dances to contemporary hip-hop. The promenade ends at Tompkins Square Park, where DanceFest—featuring more performances, lessons and parkwide social dancing—will already be under way. From Broadway and 21st St to Tompkins Square Park.
