Project Dance was born out of a desire to serve the people of New York City directly after the events of September 11th and it has managed to do just that.
Each year thousands of New Yorkers stop to watch the concert held on a temporary stage on the corner of 44th Street and Broadway now in its 10th year.
About 200 dancers will gather in London to take part in the festivities and similar events are held in Houston, Orlando, Penang, Sydney, Brisbane, and Washington DC.
