If you’ve ever wanted to twirl like a flamenco dancer or tap your feet like Fred Astaire, National Dance Week is the perfect time for anyone who hasn’t gotten moving to start! Beginning today, studios such as Ailey Extensions, the American Tap Dance Foundation, Djoniba Dance & Drum Center, Power Pilates, the Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory, and many others are offering free classes. Newcomers can try out just about every dance form known to man and then keep the party rolling long after the week of freebies is over. There’s also a performance that includes ballet, jazz, lyrical, Latin, and Middle Eastern dances on Sunday to show you how fabulously you’ll be able to move if you stick the program out.
