In 1924, R.H. Macy and Company organized a parade through the streets of New York City.
Fast-forward to today, and that small parade is a nationally televised event that reaches millions of people on Thanksgiving. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade features music, dance, floats and huge balloons.
This year, the Kruti Dance Academy was asked to bring their flourishes to the parade. The Duluth-based academy teaches classical Indian dance like Bharatanatyam and more modern dances from Bollywood.
