Happy National Dance Day!


As a dancer, I couldn’t help but wish you all a very happy National Dance Day.  This is the third annual one and it’s a perfect excuse to dance the day and the night away.  Dance is a beautiful thing and I promise I’m not just saying that because I’m bias.  It’s a great way to honestly express yourself or you can choose to take on a completely different character on stage.  You can do it to have fun or to vent.  Plus, dance has been proven to help battle depression, so I think everyone should give it a shot.  For all of my trained dancers, show off your technique that has been years in the making.  For everyone who simply loves dance, take the opportunity to dance all you want.  For the rest of you that have never tried it, maybe today is a good day to start dancing.  Personally, I am proud to say that I am a dancer and a lover of dance, so I am very excited to see the growing support for the world of dance.  Trust me when I say that dance is beautiful and you should always dance however your little heart desires.  Have fun and have a happy National Dance Day!!
