Philadelphia Dance Day

Media Title

In 2010, our city’s copious array of dance companies—spanning a multitude of techniques—began setting aside one day out of the summer to bring communities together and encourage the otherwise uninitiated masses to get off their asses and try something new. Whether you’re a veteran milonguero or a mere misanthrope who brandishes a ready-made excuse whenever someone extends an invite to the club, the kind folks participating in Philadelphia Dance Day will welcome you with open arms, showing how having a little rhythm never hurt anyone—as long as you stretch beforehand.

Kicking off bright and early at 9am, the celebration will make its way across Center City, with more than 30 distinct workshops offered at eight different studios. And don’t expect any half-baked lessons, because instructors will be pulling styles from just about every corner of the world, several of which entail a little more discipline than simply moving in circles. But if you prefer to absorb the experience one baby-step at a time, there’s always your standard jazz, ballet, tap and other rudimentary classes for all ages and skill levels.

As tempting as it is to just rent a beginner’s DVD or check out a video-on-demand lesson, this opportunity only comes once a year, and with more than 450 people expected to show up around town, chances are you won’t be the only nervous party around. After all, nothing beats hands-on practice. // JAKE ABBATE
