And support our troops & veterans!
Today is National Dance Day, the brainchild of Nigel Lythgoe (executive producer of So You Think You Can Dance) and the Dizzy Feet Foundation, a nonprofit organization supporting increased access to dance education. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will introduce a National Dance Day resolution in Congress today, but more importantly, Tabitha and Napoleon Dumo (NappyTabs!) have choreographed a routine for the occasion that you can learn:
I will be celebrating by taking a lesson from Eddie (he doesn’t know it yet, but I’m going to ask him to teach me the mambo), and then attending the second annual Dancing for our Heroes charity ball in Warner Robins. This event benefits Hearts to Heroes and the Wounded Warrior Project; last year they raised over $2000 for those two organizations. This year promises to be even bigger & better with music from the Georgia Big Band and some great dance exhibitions. Stay tuned for photos and video.
Happy National Dance Day, everybody!
