Celebrate National Dance Day

Jazzercise event celebrating National Dance Day in New Orleans on Saturday, July 27

 (New Orleans, La.) – “A moving good time” is the promise to attendees at a special Jazzercise event celebrating National Dance Day in New Orleans on Saturday, July 27, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

 

Jazzercise Old Metairie and Lake Vista are hosting the event for all to attend. “We hope to have mothers, daughters, families, siblings and groups of friends, along with our regular Jazzercisers attend,” said Christie Falcone, an instructor at Jazzercise Old Metairie and Lake Vista.

 

From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., participants will dance to routines led by Chere vanLigten, a 30-year Jazzercise instructor and Routine Taping Team Member, who teaches at the Jazzercise Fitness Center in Oceanside, California, and is an AFAA certified personal trainer.  Local Jazzercise instructors will also help lead the fun routines.

 

Proceeds from the charity event will benefit Community Works of Louisiana, Inc. (CWLA), a non-profit organization that promotes arts education for youth with after school and summer activities.

 

National Dance Day is a grassroots initiative that encourages the nation, young and old, to move.  For the celebration, individuals, families and organizations from across the nation are asked to come together and dance.  The celebration originated in conjunction with the Fox television program, “So You Think You Can Dance.”
