For some of us, tomorrow is the best day of the summer. It’s National Dance Day! Now in it’s fifth year, the annual event was started by Nigel Lythgoe and the Dizzy Feet Foundation to fight obesity and celebrate communities through dance.
There are many ways to get involved tomorrow — whether it’s watching a free hip-hop performance outdoors at Lincoln Center in New York, participating in a flash mob in Savannah, Georgia, or attending an ’80s dance party in Stuart, Florida. Nearly every city in the country is celebrating, so find an event near you! Or, you can always celebrate by taking your favorite ballet class, binging on Netflix or having a dance party in your living room.
“So You Think You Can Dance” superstars tWitch and Travis Wall have created the official routines of National Dance Day. Dancers all over the country will be learning and performing them tomorrow, so pick one and get grooving!
