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!

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Are you in a rut with what’s going on in your life, or afraid to try something new and different because either you’re terrified you’ll fail or people will look at you funny and laugh? Don’t be! We all need to step out of our regular routine, be spontaneous and try something new and a bit scary now and then, if for no other reason but to prove to ourselves we can. So make a list of a few fun, new and a bit scary things that you’d like to do and MAKE THE TIME to do them! You know … #YoullThankMELater !!!

5, 6, 7, 8 … Showtime

On May 10th, my Dancinerate studios of LA Dancefit took the studio by storm when they performed in their 1st ever dance recital. I know many of you have been waiting with baited breath to watch their mind blowing performance. It gives me great pleasure to say, “The day has finally come and the footage is here for your entertainment!” I would say, “Sit back and relax” however I have a gut feeling that you will be up on your feet dancing along with us.

I hope you enjoy seeing the unique way that each student expresses their passion for dance in this routine. I can’t express enough how much I appreciated the hard work of these amazing women. It was such a wonderful experience for me to see many of my students step out of their comfort zone and leave it all on the Dancinerate floor.

If you are up on your feet dancing with us then you must attend a Dancinerate class today! Please join us and #YoullThankMELater.
