Dance Movie Week: Day 9

Dance Movie Week:  Day 9

Today is the FINAL day of Dance Movie Week and I hope that you have enjoyed it! Thanks for checking in daily to read about my favorite Movies and sharing yours.

“White Nights” – Perfection. I’ve saved the best for last. Plain and simple… to me, there is no greater dancer in the world than Mikhail Baryshnikov. This one is less about the movie and more about the dancer. What’s your favorite dance movie? Did I miss any good ones?

Dance Movie Week: Day 3

Dance Movie Week: Day 3

I hope that you are enjoying Dance Movie Week. I know I am! We are back and it is Day 3…

“Grease”
– Fun. Your high school’s dances looked just like this, right? Ha! I wish. School would’ve been much more fun. Whether you’re doing the hand jive or shaking your thang in my Dancinerate classes, the most important thing is to JUST HAVE FUN!

When you think about this movie you will be singing the soundtrack all day long! I know I am!

National Dance Day 2014

If you would ask me this question: “What do you think everyone should celebrate everyday?” My answer: “Ha, that is easy…everyday should be National Dance Day!”

National Dance Day was created by “So You Think You Can Dance” producer Nigel Lythgoe and takes place in the United States on the last Saturday in July. It was founded and officially recognized in 2010 when American congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton introduced a National Dance Day resolution to promote dance education and physical fitness. This annual event was launched after many successful seasons of Fox’s hit TV show, “So You Think You Can Dance.” The excitement for this fun-filled day takes the United States by storm every year!

Of course I am a big fan of this day as it invites communities and individuals to come together in creative expression. Any style of dance is encouraged and the more imaginative, the better.
Everyone CAN dance! It is all about people from
all walks of life coming together to produce masterpieces of physical and emotional expression.

Sooo…can I get a 5, 6, 7, 8…Whoop here it is!!! Dancinerate footage is HOT OFF THE PRESS from this year’s National Dance Day 2014 where we rocked one unforgettable event with the Blanks Studios at The Sherman Oaks Galleria. You must check it out now! If you like it, please share with your friends ASAP so we get everyone dancing! I always say that if the whole World was dancing we would be a much happier place. Now it is your turn…share if you agree with me! I would love to hear your comments below and tell me what did you do to celebrate National Dance Day! Thanks to Nigel Lythgoe and Dizzy Feet Foundation for making this event possible.

Happy viewing!
