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.
