NYC Pride Announces Cyndi Lauper To Perform At Pier Dance

New York Pride Press Release ?NYC Pride announced Grammy Award winning artist Cyndi Lauper will be one of the performers at this year?s Dance on the Pier. Performing her new dance single ?Sex is in the Heel? from the upcoming Broadway musical Kinky Boots, Cyndi joins a long list of top talent that has graced the famous stage. Artists such as Janet Jackson, Jenifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson and the late Whitney Houston have been a part of this historic event. Cyndi?s tireless work as an LGBT civil rights advocate and co-founder of the True Colors Fund made her an obvious choice as a 2012 Grand Marshal. Her undeniable talent makes her a perfect fit for the Pride week closing festivities. NYC Pride will be announcing additional talent as the event draws closer.

?Pride is about celebration, we are honored to have Cyndi celebrate with us,? said Mo George, Dance Director.

?What an amazing way to introduce our new home for the Pier Dance to our audience, with a memorable performance from Grammy Award winning artist, Cyndi Lauper,? said Chris Frederick, Managing Director. ?We will continue to raise the bar on delivering a high caliber production for this event that will definitely not disappoint.?

NYC Pride also announced a new extended run time for the Dance on the Pier. The event will begin at 5 p.m., following the conclusion of the LGBT Pride March, and run until 2 a.m.

?We responded to a certain level of discontent with the later start time. We think these new hours will fit everyone?s schedule and allow for an extended Pier Dance that has never been experienced in the history of New York City Pride Week,? Frederick noted.

Additionally, NYC Pride will be adding an additional DJ to its Dance on the Pier line-up. DJ Eddie Baez will now be spinning the opening spot from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Known for his tenure as the premier resident DJ at New York?s Sound Factory, Eddie will bring serious talent to an already powerful list of performers.

The Dance on the Pier takes place on Sunday, June 24 at its new home at Pier 57. Tickets are available for purchase online at nycpride.showclix.com.
