If you are looking for something to do tomorrow, get your dancing shoes, $1 and head out to Nunley Stadium.
Aimee Bielling and Destiny Jordan have organized the first National Dance Day in Warren County this Saturday, July 27, with registration beginning at 9 a.m.
Launched in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe, National Dance Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the last Saturday in July. This campaign encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun way to maintain good health and combat obesity.
National Dance Day in Warren County was designed with the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” in mind and is a fundraiser with proceeds going to Kids of the Community.
Bielling said, “Destiny and I watched the show and they showed the Dizzy Feet Foundation website. We registered our event online. We will videotape the performances and we hope they will pick us and show us on their show.”
Each year Dizzy Feet Foundation creates instructional dance videos for people to learn, perform and share with others.
The dances to be learned this year were created by “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers and cater to a range of dance abilities so anyone can take part.
Bielling said there will be a $1 entrance fee at the gate and learning the dances and dancing all day is free.
Saturday’s schedule is:
• 9 a.m. – Registration
• 10 a.m. – Stretch/ Yoga class
• 10:30 a.m. – First Dance class (easier, geared toward children)
• Noon – Second Dance class (Intermediate, line dance)
• 1:45 p.m. – Third dance class (hip hop)
• 3:10-3:45 p.m. – dance in front of everyone
All participants will learn new dances and teams will perform in front of spectators at the end of the day.
Members of Paula’s Dance Academy, Paula’s, XTreme Cheer, WCHS cheerleading, and WCHS Pioneerettes will also perform.
Various vendors will also be set up throughout the day. T-shirts will be available.
