    Thank you so much for the wonderful idea of National Dance Day. We held, what we hope will be, only the first of many more years of National Dance Day. We had 120 dancers at our event. We did line dancing, soul line dancing, zumba and israeli dancing. It was an over the top, spectacular – not to mention exhausting – day. The teachers were awesome and you could feel the camaraderie and love that filled the room. Again, thank you, from all of us who attended this memorable event. Ruthie

    I want to thank the Arthur Murray dance Studio of Palm Harbor, Florida for hosting a National Dance Day party. The only place in Florida to do so! Their very friendly staff put on a great party which included teaching everyone the Napoleon and Tabitha routine. It was a lot of fun!

    I produced a short documentary called “Adult Beginner Ballet” that features Kathy Mata, a 60 year-old dedicated instructor, who is determined to teach her students (ranging in ages from 16-80) the beautiful and technically challenging art of ballet.

    So I will be visting New York City On National Dance Day, and at first I was really excited that I was going to be in a big city for this day, since I’m from Wyoming. But now I see that there is only 1 thing going on in New York and none of the close six flags seem to be participating. :( I’m a little bummed! If anyone has any info for more things going on in New York for this please post it!!!!

    I thought Asuka was denftiiely overrated and no where near as good a ballroom dancer as we have had in the past. I don\’t think she is even on the same level as Lacey or Chelsea (and of course she\’s not as good as Anya . Nigel kept saying she had great personality but I didn\’t see that either. I\’m glad she is off the show.I think Karla and Vitolio will be good dancing together.
