“Massive Dance Party” Coming to Philadelphia

KYW Newsradio reports on Philadelphia Dance Day, coming on July 27:

It’s happening on July 27, and all of the workshops before 5:30 p.m. are free to the public. And there are plenty — from ballet and modern dance to salsa and co-ed pole dancing (yes, really).

Organizers say the non-profit fest was organized as a way to unite people through dance, “apowerful platform for creative expression and physical activity.”

The Philadelphia Dance Day website adds:

All dance enthusiasts – regardless of experience or even coordination – are invited to take part in the fun on July 27, 2013. There will be something for everyone, from ballet for kids to hip-hop for all ages. Participants will tour studios around the city to sample free workshops during the afternoon, then come together in the evening for the main event at the historical Ethical Society Building on Rittenhouse Square. Festivities kick off there with a huge Zumba party, followed by more lessons and open social dancing. Volunteer instructors and well-respected dance groups in the city will also put on a performance showcase.
