I actually dance in Day of Dance! I enjoy every minute of it! Seeing people smiling and telling us how we good we are and to keep up the good work makes me smile. For a smaller city we get ALOT of people that comes to this event! Can't wait for Day of Dance 2011 at Colony Square Mall!

I try to introduce my daughter to fun activities that promote health and fitness. Last year we attend Day of Dance sponsored by Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta. We had so much fun and left the event vowing to go back the next time it came around. What a wonderful mother/daughter outing.

Four years ago when I learned that cardiovascular disease was the number one killer of Americans, I made it my mission to educate my community about how they can prevent themselves from becoming part of this statistic. One of the most important ideas to realize about cardiovascular disease is that it is preventable, and if we take those necessary steps to live a heart healthy lifestyle, we can lessen the incidence of cardiovascular disease in our country! As a dancer, I have kept my heart healthy by doing something I love to do. That's what I love about Day of Dance. It encourages us to keep our hearts healthy and have fun doing it.

My husband and I went to the last Day of Dance at the Lancaster General Health Campus. It was such a fun day. It was awesome to particiapte in some of the dances and watch others. There is so much useful information that you can also get from this event. Don't miss it.

I am a 68 year old woman who has danced all my life. I still teach 13-15 classes and rehearsals per week. I have a professional dance group and an aspiring dance group. I recently just started a group for senior citizens. Tonight for Day of Dance we will be performing in a local restaurant. No pay but a wonderful time so us seniors can keep our hand in performing . It keeps us young and healthy. I firmly believe that dancing is the best exercise and that it has kept me out of a wheelchair for the past 35 years. I ma very careful with my teaching so that no one harms their bodies whether 15 or 65. I have made a point of studying the correct way to keep your health and body. So ladies of America and the world dance, enjoy and stay healthy.

I saw your "Day of Dance" program listed in the Working Mother magazine and in checking locations for the event, I did not see any events in Chicago or in any of the hospitals in Chicago. Your event sounds fabulous but why not Chicago?
Jackie – Chicago, IL
I saw the ad in Good Housekeeping magazine and went to the website. I own a ballroom dance studio and my business partner is a prime example of how dancing can keep you alive. He has undergone triple by-pass surgery....and swears by the life saving/changing aspect of dance. We will be hosting a dance party on Feb. 28th (8-11-PM) and serving "heart healthy" recipes for dinner. Located in Miami, Florida.... Bijoux Dance Center invites the public to join our effort. The requirements of ballroom dancing are the same as other athletic activities: mental and physical fitness, stamina, endurance and balance.

I just love the energy of this program. I am here in South Florida and just never associated all the Latin dancing around me with more than just making me happier...It is great to realize that I am actually healthier for having so much fun in life. Great message. Great program. I will definitely be at the Day of Dance at Good Samaritan here in West Palm Beach.

I am the booster president of a high school dance team. How would we get involved to sponsor such an event? I would love to team up with a local hospital.
Linda – Florida
Can you tell us what is involved in a sponsorship. I am the CEO of Lindstrom & McKenney, my husband and I are dancers and friends of the Chu's - the Dancing Doctors showcased on your web site.

I just saw an ad for the Day of Dance. I own two Arthur Murray Dance Studios and am always interested in events that promote dancing. I don't know if I have time to organize something by the 28th, but I'd like more info on the organization, who it benefits & how. Most importantly, how do I organize the event, do you have publicity kits, etc? Is this a "pledge" type of event where the dancers collect pledges?
Barbara – East Norriton, PA
I am interested in finding out more information about the National Day of Dance. I would like to assist in co-ordinating a Day of Dance Event at my daughter's school.
The coach at the school had previously expressed an interest in organizing such an event. My husband and I dance hustle and salsa and we would like to co-ordinate something with the coach at the school to teach some dance to parents and teachers, and have some of the students showcase their dancing.
I gather that the purpose of the Day of Dance event is to introduce more people to engaging in dance for heart health. So we would like to get the parents and kids learning some new dances. I would like to find out what resources and or guidelines you may have available for me to take this further and approach the school about putting together an event on the 28th.

This looks like a great program. Unfortunately, there's not even one event scheduled in the entire state of Alabama. I'd like to help, if I can. I would like to know how this works, who organizes the events, and whether I would have to wait until next year to be involved.
I am not a woman of great financial means, but I am a bellydance instructor (with many friends who dance, including flamenco and even classical Indian). I am also a woman who runs a higher risk of heart problems when I grow older.
I go weekly the Women's Center of Brookwood Medical Center here in Birmingham, AL for certain treatments. The nurses have literally become good friends of mine, and who have become interested in me teaching them Middle Eastern Dance. Perhaps I could speak with my physician about including Brookwood Women's Center next year. I imagine something of this magnitude would need more than 25 days to put together.
I hope I haven't rambled in my inquiry. I just felt called to contact you and see how I can help.
