Dance Day, Dixie Regional Performance Center parking lot party

ST. GEORGE — You do not have to be a professional or trained dancer to come shake a tail feather during the National Dance Day party, Saturday, 8-10 p.m., in the Dixie Regional Health and Performance Center parking lot located at 652 S. Medical Center Drive in St. George.

The event is sponsored by the Intermountain LiVe Well Center, inviting people of all ages and experience levels to the 3rd annual celebration of dance. Free snacks and drinks will be available for all participants.

Dance Day came to Utah in 2013 when the Keil family wanted to bring family and dance together for one night.

“To me, our community is all about family,” April Keil said. “To add on top of that, you’ve got fun, fitness and dance. This just brings everyone together to groove and dance.”

Dixie Regional Medical Center has been involved in the annual event every year after the first year, encouraging families to get out of the house together for fun and better health, it said in press release.

Many dance groups from the surrounding area will perform routines on stage, and those who come to the event are invited to dance along, even if they do not know the moves.

    I hope someone has done their homework and got a dance permit. I don’t know how many beds are not being used in the jail, but dancing without a permit in this cow town is highly illegal and the cops love to enforce that! Just sayin.
