Get your groove on at the Philadelphia Dance Day July 28th

"One Day. One City. Tons of Free Dance Workshops." Sounds like our kind of fun! Get your dancing shoes on next Saturday for one of the best days all summer.

Get your groove on at the Philadelphia Dance Day July 28th

 

What better way to close out the last weekend in July then with a massive dance party?  Along with that and countless workshops and tutorials, the Philadelphia Dance Day is going to be filled with various styles of dance ranging from ballet to bellydancing.  Bust a move, get funky, do whatever, but you'll definitely want to check out this huge day of dance. 

Philly Dance Fitness started PDD as a way to celebrate National Dance Day, an idea started by the creators of the FOX reality show "So You Think You Can Dance?".  After that took off, so did this dancing extravanganza.  With 300 people invloved last year, that number looks to increase this year.

More coverage

Participants will be able to tour a number of studios around the city and partake in workshops of all different styles of dance.  The day culminates with a huge Zumba party at the Ethical Society Building in Rittenhouse Square.  Included wil be additional tutorials from volunteer instructors as well as performances by local dance groups. Here's a look at the workshop schedule so you can start planning out your day now!

Dance in all forms is extremely liberating and enlivening, and we think that is exactly what the Philadelphia Dance Day is going to bring to all of its participants.
