Hello and Happy Blogiversary Week!  I hope you guys are as excited for today as I am because I have such an awesome giveaway for you guys!  Turning 1 rocks! 🙂

You know how much I love to dance and I get my groove on whenever possible (like here, here and here!).  Well, naturally one of my favorite shows on TV is So You Think You Can Dance.  I’ve been watching it since the second season.  The choreography, the costumes and, of course, the dancing are all amazing!  Show creator and executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe and the Dizzy Feet Foundation, launched National Dance Day in 2010 to promote dance as a fun way to maintain good health.  This year, National Dance Day is THIS Saturday July 27, 2013!  Time to celebrate!

Every year So You Think You Can Dance and the Dizzy Feet Foundation offer a video containing choreography that you can learn at home.  This year’s video was choreographed by fan favorites, Tabitha and Napoleon.  You can try out the choreography too by going to the website and watching the video!

You can also upload a video of yourself doing the moves through the Dizzy Feet Foundation website!  And if you want to get even more involved, I’ve got some fun suggestions below!

–  Try out my Dance Cardio video on my YouTube Channel  (Also, check out my channel on Saturday and you *may* find a special dance surprise!!)

–  New Yorkers, check out some of my favorite dance studios like DMF or 305 Fitness

–  Get your Zumba on with at-home Zumba Exhilarate DVD set or Zumba Wii

–  Put on a playlist and just get your groove on in your own living room!  I’ve even got a playlist for you!

    I like to dance in front of the mirror – not so much in public.. And a good motown song always gets me started!

    I’m a diva in the mirror, not so much in public though. I love dancing to “That Power” by Will.I.Am ft. Justin Bieber.

    Those look awesome! I’m so jealous you were able to attend Fit Bloggin’!

    I love to dance. Lately I have been attending quite a few weddings so there has been lots of dancing. I don’t really have a favorite song to dance to but at my wedding we had a ton of young kids at the reception. For something fun that involved them my bridesmaids and I learned the hoedown throwdown from the Hannah Montana movie (it came out a little before my wedding) and invited all the kids to dance it with us. They had a blast and it was fun to dance with all of them!

    I’m not very coordinated and usually stay away from dance themed workouts. However, I am in need of a cardio option to use with my strength training DVD so I’ll have to check out your YouTube video. Hopefully it’s easy! 🙂

    • FitBritt
      July 25, 2013

      Well at least you can do it in the comfort of your own home so you don’t have to worry about anyone watching you! 🙂

    I was a competitive dancer for 10 years but I have never felt comfortable just like “freestyle” fun dancing.

    I love any song with a good beat!!! Love the older songs

  • Debbie @ Live from La Quinta
    July 25, 2013

    I’m definitely an “in front of the mirror at home” type. And since I’m a little older, I get inspired by 80s disco music 🙂

  • Melissa Burton
    July 25, 2013

    The only song I can’t get behind is the Pitbull/Aguilera one. It’s remixed with a-ha’s “Take On Me” (I’m showing my age) and it just doesn’t work for me. However, if I won the earphones, I would dance to the song gladly!

    • FitBritt
      July 25, 2013

      I also love Take On Me (and it may be showing up in the suprise I was referring to on my YouTube channel this weekend!)! 🙂 Thanks for entering!

  • M. Love
    July 25, 2013

    I will totally bust a move in public — and I really don’t have a fav song. I LOVE music and can jam out to just about everything 🙂 My students always seem to get a kick from it! haha

  • Sarah (Shh...Fit Happens)

    I def. need the playlist!!! Headphones would be nice too, mine are so old (gross!)

    • FitBritt

      Hopefully you’ll be jamming to the playlist with your new headphones. Thanks for entering and good luck!

  • Lauren

    I love some old school jams like salt n pepper “Push it” and currently Icona Pop’s “I Love it!”

  • Darlena Kolpak

    I have no shame. I dance in my middle of the gym sometimes. It helps with rest time between lifts.

  • Erin Kenny

    I’m an awful dancer, but that doesn’t stop me from jamming out to any song that moves me!

    Ahh I absolutely dance around in front of the mirror! I’m a Zumba instructor, so just about any music will get me movin and shakin!

  • Jessie Emeric

    Oh I can’t dance to save my life! But, I do love good music & a new set of headphones for my half marathon training runs would be fab!

    I’m definitely more of a ‘dance in front of the mirror’ type of guy. One song that still to this day gets me motivated enough to attempt to dance is “Forever” by Chris Brown. This song just does it all for me, great lyrics and chorus backed by an awesome beat. To me it never gets old. Hopefully I win. Many thanks.
