Cary, NC — Whether you love dance or just want to get outside and move around, you can celebrate National Dance Day 2014 right here in Cary.
Celebrate National Dance Day in Cary
On Saturday, July 26, 2014, at the Mills Park Softball Fields in West Cary, Starpath Dance Academy studio owner Lindsey Kaplowitz will teach this year’s National Dance Day routine created by the Dizzy Feet Foundation.
The dance will be performed all across the country on July 26, 2014, designated as National Dance Day.
All About Fitness
Dance is not only a great way to express oneself creatively, but also a fun way to stay fit. Events like National Dance Day help bring that message to communities across the United States.
According to Eat Smart, Move More NC, two-thirds of the adult population in North Carolina is overweight or obese, and North Carolina ranks fifth-worst in the United States for childhood obesity, making it important to bring this message to our community.
“Using dance as a means to stay healthy is a very important message that we want to send to everyone, not just our dancers,” said Lindsey Kaplowitz, founder and artistic director of Starpath Dance Academy. “Besides being a great way to express oneself creatively, dance is a fun way to stay fit. Events like National Dance Day help bring that message to communities across the United States.”
So You Think You Can Dance
So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe created the Dizzy Feet Foundation in 2009 with the aim of supporting, improving, and increasing access to dance education in the United States.
Now in its fourth year, National Dance Day annually reminds people of the importance of dance and its many benefits. Since its launch, it earned a United States Congressional Resolution and has been supported by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Grand Park, LA.
And now Cary, NC.
