In 10 days, Art Attack will take over the Houston Press parking lot to celebrate National Dance Day, and we're asking you to come out and dance with us. After all, it's not every day you get to be one with your fellow So You Think You Can Dance fans, hang with the Houston Dynamo Dance squad and have a chance to end up on TV.
There are events all across the country, including Dallas and San Antonio, so we wanted to be sure Houston gets represented. Right now, we're in the middle of learning this easy-peasy lemon-squeezy salsa routine choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy:
Keep watching this space for an instructional video of our own.
Practice the routine at home and then show up on Saturday, July 30. Other than your dancing feet, all you have to bring is the white T-shirt we're asking you to wear.
Members of the Houston Dynamo Dance Squad will be there to help everyone run through the group dance before we film it. We'll upload the film to Youtube as part of SYTYCD's call for entries. Water and snacks will be on hand as well.
The Art Attack-sponsored flash mob dance video shoot is scheduled for Saturday, July 30, 10 a.m. to noon at the Press parking lot, 1621 Milam. Dress comfortably, and please wear a white T-shirt.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
