Among today’s array of choices, the chance to beat the heat and dance in Grand Park fountain may prove the most popular, led by stars from television’s So You Think You Can Dance as part of National Dance Day. Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman and Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo are among the SYTYCD luminaries leading four hours of free performances and dance classes (including that fountain dance class). Classes are geared to all levels, with YouTube videos already posted for one routine (sort of a line dance) and a hip-hop master class. Later in the evening, SYTYCD-related Dizzy Feet Foundation sponsors a gala performance with SYTYCD alums onstage and a post-performance supper for VIP ticket holders. Check links to the routines at if you want to practice beforehand.
