Put on those dancin' shoes, Charlotte, because National Dance Day is happening this Saturday! Join us in Wells Fargo Plaza anytime from 1 to 4:30 p.m. for workshops, performances and giveaways. Did we mention it's all FREE to the public? Now, that's a reason to break into your happy dance.National+Dance+Day+Celebration+Presented+Music+rCy_tX-8AsFl.jpg

National Dance Day was conceptualized in 2010 by So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe to encourage people of all ages to get moving. In the past few years, the event has grown to include cities all over the country, including our very own Queen City.

National Dance Day activities in Charlotte are part of the Blumenthal WHIRL initiative thanks to the genorous support of Carolinas HealthCare System. This event is for classically-trained ballerinas, hip hop artists, modern movers, Dance Dance Revolution champs, and even those with no dance experience at all! All ages and experience levels are welcome and encouraged to get active by participating in Saturday's free workshops and events.

In the event of inclement weather, don't worry. Nothing can rain on this parade, and all activites will be moved inside the Wells Fargo Atrium.
