It's that time of year again! Every year on the last Saturday in July, the country celebrates National Dance Day. This Saturday, July 27th marks the day of fun this year, with dance events going on around the country. EVERYONE is encouraged to do some sort of movement to celebrate the day - dancer or not. Many communities are hosting several events if you want to get out and dance, but if you're a little too shy to be dancing in public, the Dizzy Feet Foundation (the originators of the event) have provided a couple of instructional videos for you to practice in your own home. Go to the Dizzy Feet Event Page for more information on these routines as well as the history of National Dance Day.
If you're going to be in the LA area, or are looking for a reason to be there, you can also buy tickets to the Celebration of Dance Gala hosted by the Dizzy Feet Foundation. This is a great event that will feature some fantastic dance performances from So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars, the American Ballet Theater and many others, as well as a black tie supper. Tickets start at just $34 so the Gala is accessible for everyone that wants to come out and celebrate for National Dance Day!
Here are two of the official National Dance Day routines that you can learn right at home!
Be sure to check out what your community is doing for this fun day that seems to get bigger and better every year!
