Celebration of Dance
The Dizzy Feet Foundation and FOX's So You Think You Can Dance call on America to bust a move at this year's National Dance Day, happening locally as part of the official opening of downtown's Grand Park. Learn two routines in advance (online at dizzyfeetfoundation.org), then get in step with all-star Lauren Gottlieb for a hip-hop master class or shake it to an "Everybody Dance" workout from Zumba Fitness.
