As part of July Jubilee, a month-long celebration of dance in New Orleans, the city’s dance community will host a $5 Dance Class Challenge and the National Dance Day Celebration.

The $5 Dance Class Challenge, which runs from July 25 to August 6, will offer $5 classes for all skill levels in a range of genres including African, ballet, belly dance, bounce, contemporary, hip hop, and salsa. Participating dance studios and programs include Broadmoor Arts & Wellness Center, Bounce Fitness, Crescent Lotus Dance Studio, Dance Quarter/NOLA Spaces, NORDC/NOBA, and more.

Any adult that visits five or more studios over the course of the dance class challenge will be entered in a raffle to win free class packages and other prizes.
The National Dance Day Celebration will be held on Saturday, July 30, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the New Orleans Recreation Department Commission (NORDC) Treme Center, located at 900 N. Villere Street. The free celebration will include demo classes from local dance studios, youth and professional dance performances, and a flash mob.

This event is being orchestrated by the New Orleans Dance Network, an organization formed to serve the dance community by promoting the visibility and viability of dance in the greater New Orleans area. Class schedules and event details can be found on the New Orleans Dance Network website here.

National Dance Day was created by So You Think You Can Dance producer and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe. This grassroots campaign encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity.

July Jubilee is made possible with the generous support of NORDC, the New Orleans Public Library, Dirty Coast Press, and a coalition of dance organizations: Bounce Fitness, Crescent Lotus Dance Studio, Dance Quarter/NOLA Spaces, Dancing Grounds, Live Oak Dance, Liquid Rhythm Inc., and Upturn Arts.
