Dance like nobody is watching at this free event designed to get families and friends together to celebrate dance, fitness, movement and life.

Trevor Smith, regional manager of the Intermountain LiVe Well Center at DRMC, said in a press release that dance is the “universal language of exercise.”

“It’s a great way to enjoy life and stay fit,” Smith said.

National Dance Day was created in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe. The day is held nationwide on the last Saturday of every July.

Saturday’s event will mark the sixth year for the Keil Krew to host a National Dance Day celebration in St. George.

“We look forward to this day every year,” April Te’o Keil said in a post to the National Dance Day celebration’s Facebook event page.

The evening will feature performances and instruction from some of the best dance and fitness groups throughout Utah. People of all ages and experience levels are invited and encouraged to attend. Free snacks and drinks will be provided for all participants.

    Mike, It sure seems like it though. We’re kinda new to this area and it appears to us that it’s interweaved into everything. It may not look like it on the surface but ya don’t have to dig very deep to find the Morman connection.
