FREE Philadelphia Dance Day Events!

Mark your calendars! The seventh annual Philadelphia Dance Day is coming up on July 30, featuring more than 25 FREE workshops at studios all around the city and a huge $5 evening event with more instructional sessions, a performance showcase and social dancing. Seriously, this is one of the best events in Philly in the summer — the shore can wait for another weekend!

What could be better than a massive, citywide summer dancestravaganza? Another free dance party, of course! To highlight the upcoming Dance Day, we’re heading to Eakins Oval for a free family-friendly preview on Sunday, July 17. The hour-long program starts at noon and will include line dancing, Zumba, Bollywood, hip-hop, Power Stretch and more!

Even if you can’t make these events, please help us spread the word by inviting your friends! Here’s a Facebook invite for the OVAL Preview and an invite for Dance Day itself.

And, there’s more! Two days after dancing at the OVAL, the Independence Business Alliance’s Women in Business Committee will be hosting a fundraising happy hour in support of Dance Day! Join us at Stir Lounge in Rittenhouse Square on Tuesday, July 19 for drink specials and great company, all while helping raise awareness of this awesome community event! Find all the details here or in this Facebook event post.

Philadelphia Dance Day is a volunteer-driven nonprofit event held every year on the last Saturday in July. The goal: To unite the community in celebrating dance as a powerful platform for creative expression and physical activity. This collaborative event would not be possible without the support of dozens of partner organizations, sponsors, volunteers and donors. If you’d like to get involved, too, please contact us to volunteer to volunteer or make a tax-deductible contribution online. See you on July 30!
