Celebrate National Dance Day

Join us to celebrate National Dance Day on the last Saturday in July. To promote dance as a great way to have fun and be healthy, we'll learn a beginner dance routine. As part of the national celebration, we'll create and share a video of our group dancing. 

Visit the Dizzy Feet Foundation Events page to watch the routines. No dance experience is necessary, please just wear comfortable clothes and bring your enthusiasm.

Dancers of all ages welcome: recommended for ages 8 and up. No registration required.

Dance Your Fanny Off

Families with young children can join us for a freestyle dance party for our littlest patrons. Everyone gets movin' and groovin' to some great dance tunes.

This program is for new walkers up to 5 years old with their caregivers.
