Come be a part of the eighth annual nonprofit Philadelphia Dance Day! A group of local dance companies have teamed up to offer a Saturday packed with more than 25 FREE workshops, live performances and a $5 evening dance party and showcase. The goal: to unite the community in celebrating dance as a powerful platform for creative expression and physical activity.
All dance enthusiasts – regardless of experience – are invited to take part in the fun on July 29, 2017. There will be something for everyone, from tap dancing to ballroom to Zumba for kids. No need to pre-register, just show up ready to dance!
Visit three studios around the city to sample as many free workshops as you like during the day, then come together in the evening for the main event at the historical Ethical Society Building on Rittenhouse Square. Festivities there include an all-ages hip-hop masterclass, a variety of partner dance lessons and a performance showcase featuring both student and professional dance groups. After that, the floor will open up for social dancing so you can practice what you learned earlier in the day.
