Miami City Ballet’s National Dance Day Celebration
July 30, 2016 –
Miami City Ballet is celebrating National Dance Day on Saturday, July 30, with a dance party in Collins Park followed by an Open House across the street at MCB Studios to showcase MCB School programs.
Free and open to the public, the event is part of an annual celebration launched in 2010 by the Dizzy Feet Foundation and made popular by the hit TV show, “So You Think You Can Dance.” The tradition has since been carried out in Los Angeles and Washington D.C., so MCB is excited to lead the charge in inviting the community to its first-ever celebration in Miami Beach. The event will raise support for MCB and Dizzy Feet’s shared mission to encourage Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity.
So bring your dancing shoes for an outdoor dance party starting at 10 am. Participants will be guided through a dance routine created especially for National Dance Day. The dance party will culminate with everyone performing together in a flash mob.
After the dance party, cool off inside MCB’s beautiful state-of-the-art facilities in Miami Beach with refreshments by Vita Coco and ice cream by Azucar Ice Cream Company. The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders will be signing autographs and taking pictures with dance fans. MCB dancers will be leading building tours, giving guests a chance to interact one-on-one with our artists and get a behind- the-scenes look at the life of a dancer. Get into the spirit of the day by participating in a free dance class: Videosync – a blend of
pop jazz, hip hop and soul-dance fitness; or Jazz Funk- incorporating several dance genres into a funky style that is fun and expressive. These classes are appropriate for all ages and levels.
