Growing up I LOVED to dance. Shocker right? I was a toddler in a tutu, a tween tapping the blackberry boogie and in high school AND college, I practiced my show choir jazz hands dance moves like nobody’s business. Let’s just say I was a dancing fool.
So obviously I still twitch and tap my toes everytime I hear a good beat. To say I have a soft, spot in my soul for live music and live dance performances would be an understatement. So when DANCE Cleveland dropped me a note about their upcoming celebration of dance I wanted all the details to share with all of you!
Northeast Ohio’s premiere dance presenter, DANCECleveland, is proud to bring back its second-annual summer dance festival in Cleveland. This 10-Day festival offers fun dance experiences for every aspiring (& total wanna be’s) ranging from novices to dance aficionados.
Partnering with the renowned, American Dance Festival (ADF), will include performances by two world-class dance companies, the launch of the new speaker Series; Body of Work: Dialogues on Dance, an educational workshop series for advanced level dancers which will be taught by ADF faculty, free community events on the National Day of Dance that will close down E. 14th St. and fill it with dance…can we say “Dancing in the streets!”
Seriously though…go to the website and they have a video where you can learn the entire routine for the National Day of Dance; dance-off. There is also all of the registration paperwork so you are sure to be qualified to dance your heart out! For other happenings, days and times check out the event schedule on their site or below.
