National Dance Day 2017

//National Dance Day 2017

Get your dancing shoes and gear together as National Dance Day is just around the corner.

NDD was initiated in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythoe as a way to encourage Americans to stay healthy and combat obesity through dance. 

Each year on the last Saturday in July, both dancers and non-dancers alike, from coast to coast join the movement by uniting with their communities through dance and as a result raise awareness for obesity and other health issues that dance can help prevent.

Dizzy Feet releases videos annually of official routines for participants to learn and perform as one during the day’s events. With more than one version to choose from, typically an advanced choreography and an easier, modified version, there is something for everyone regardless of dance ability or experience level. The routines are displayed at NDD gatherings all across the country. 

This year ATOMIC joins the celebration with its own special National Dance Day event. Led by Care’n Chato on Saturday, July 29th, from noon-4pm, participants will learn the official National Dance Day routines created by “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers and featuring alumni from the show.

Don’t miss this chance to dance for a cause. Simply bring a friend with you to ATOMIC, sign up and prepare to dance ’til you drop!.
