dancingDid you participate in National Dance Day last Saturday? Oh what? You didn’t know? Shame on you 🙂

Well now you know. Nigel Lythgoe from the popular show So You Think You Can Dance started this trend 5 years ago and it has grown into an iconic annual celebration. The purpose is to encourage people to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity. It really is so much fun too! You can learn to appreciate your body and understand what it can do for you while having BIG TIME FUN!

We have held big celebrations on this day in all parts of the country. In fact, it’s a worldwide event now. Next year I will keep you informed beforehand so you can participate, explore and have fun with us. But for now, you can still try and learn this year’s routine and do it throughout the year — so next year you will be even more ready for new stuff. It will challenge your body and your brain.

Here’s what happens. Team captains on the show demonstrate a dance routine for you to learn and on National Dance Day everyone gets together and does it. It’s similar to a flash mob, only in this case we really show up to party and keep you in the mood of moving your body on a regular basis.

There is a beginner and advance version this year. Try what’s easiest for you. The website and tutorial for both the dances is:
