Think you have what it takes to be on So You Think You Can Dance? Well, even if you don’t, this event if for you. The show has proclaimed Saturday, July 30 as “National Dance Day,” and all around the nation events will provide free (a donation is recommended) dance classes to teach 3 dances choreographed by some of SYTYCD‘s own judges and choreographers. These classes will span all skill levels, so if you’re in the Austin area and want to learn a fun dance routine, make it out to Ballet Austin’s Butler Dance Education Center on Saturday. You can see the schedule for your skill level here. This can be a great way to learn some new moves and to burn some calories!

Not in the Austin area but still want to be a part of National Dance Day? Check out the listings for a place near you that’s participating.



We wish we could head to them all, but we can’t, so you’ll have to let us know how they are.  Do you have any other events happening this weekend? Tell us in the comments, or add them to our Events page!
