The National Dance Day in Washington, D.C. today

The Event hosted by Nigel Lythgoe, was held in Washington, D.C. National Mall near by the Capital. I think there were about 500 people had showed up. It was AWESOME!!!!

Everyone looked they had a great time! Dancing is both healthy and healing. Congresswoman Eleanor Norton Holmes and Nigel Lythgoe, and all the rest did a really great job. The performers and camera crew were excellent, so thoroughly enjoyed this event. Thankful for all those who played a part in bringing this initiative to pass.
