Description

It's back! Celebrate National Dance Day with us on July 27 in LeBauer Park. This favorite, FREE community event is the perfect chance to come together with friends and neighbors to shake your groove thing! New this year, a partnership between Greensboro Downtown Parks, Inc., Dance Project: The School at City Arts, and Strictly Social will bring wearable SUBPAC devices for members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community to join us in the celebration. SUBPACs sync with the music to produce vibrations that allow the wearer to literally feel the music. For more information on the SUBPAC system, check it out here: https://subpac.com/what-is-the-subpac/

Dj MikeWawa kicks off National Dance Day at 3:30pm on LeBauer's Great Lawn, underneath Janet Echelman's hanging sculpture, "Where We Met", and the park's international flags. At 4:00pm, we'll ramp up the fun with a flashmob style community dance - stay tuned for videos of choreography coming soon and rehearsal info, so you can be a part of the fun, too! The rest of the day will bring a variety of dance styles, from Bachata to Streetsyle, Afro Beats to Swing, Ballroom to Bollywood and SO MUCH MORE. This is your chance to join professional dancers on the floor and express yourself in a whole new way. And, at 8:00pm, join the DJs from Strictly Social to continue the fun into the night with an awesome dance party!
