More Than 500 Dancers in 2014!

Who would have thought that after five years, we would continue to break new records on Dance Day?!! About 525 people came out to dance on July 26. That’s 75 more than last year!!! Total workshop participation: 896.

That’s a lot of dancing.

Relive the day here by flipping through some photos from the daytime workshops and evening event, as well as videos from the performances.

And, of course, mark your calendars now for Dance Day 2015. As usual, it will be the last Saturday of the month, which is July 25. See you then!
