National Dance Day

(Image found here)

Did you know that tomorrow is National Dance Day? There are festivities going on throughout the country to help celebrate the world of dance. I took dance lessons for 10 years and competed on a dance team in high school so needless to say, dancing holds a special place in my heart. Dancing has become quite popular due in large part to TV reality shows like "Dancing With the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance." I am a huge fan of the latter show which is where I found out about National Dance Day.

This a great way to get off the couch and get your groove thing on! For details on what may be available in your area, check out this site.

For those of you who live local, the Hagerstown Gold's Gym is doing a Dance-a-Thon in their parking lot tomorrow from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. with Body Jam and Zumba classes. There's free food too (I heard something about fajitas) so definitely worth checking out.

Also, Nigel Lythgoe will be in Washington D.C. to kick off the festivities there, including a flash mob!! As soon as I heard there would be a flash mob, I knew where I would be tomorrow afternoon...the National Mall!! If you're interested in learning the routine, it can be found here.

So get your dancing shoes's time to booooogie!! See you there...
