‘Gotta dance! Gotta dance!’
The New York Dance Parade on Saturday featured almost four-dozen different styles of dance. Some of the more well known included ballet and modern, but there was also dancing on stilts and even pole dancing. East Village merchants were also tapping their toes with delight: Workers at Ray’s Candy Store, at Seventh St. and Avenue A, on Sunday said they did an incredible volume of business the day before when the parade ended at Tompkins Square Park for a DanceFest.
