Dance Movie Week: Day 2

Dance Movie Week: Day 2

“Dirty Dancing” – Passion. Passion is one of those things that makes everything better and allows you to escape to your happy place, and this movie was full of it! You can always tell when someone is truly passionate about what they are doing. It shows in their eyes and their energy. Whether it’s dancing, parenting, or high-adventure activities, everyone needs to find at least 1 thing in life they are passionate about in order to stay motivated and inspired.

Stay tuned for Day 3…

Dance Movie Week: Day 1

Dance Movie Week:  Day 1

So much of my inspiration to dance came from watching talented performers on the big screen, so this week I’m celebrating some of my favorite dance movies!

Let’s start with Day 1:

“Fame” – Dream. OMG! Such a classic. Loved everything about this movie and can watch it over and over again. It makes me feel alive and so excited about dance and chasing my own dream of pursuing a career in this performing art. What a feeling! #Fame #IreneCara #GeneAnthonyRay #dream #dancemovies #youllthankmelater

Check back each day for another fun image and more of my favorite dance movies. Please make sure to Like, Comment, and Share with your friends.

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!
