Join Art Attack for National Dance Day on July 30

It's no secret that we're kind of big fans of Fox's dance competition series So You Think You Can Dance. We've been recapping the show all season, and now, we have a chance to live out the action. And we're asking you to join us.

On Saturday, July 30, in honor of National Dance Day, we'll host a flash mob that in our downtown Houston parking lot. With official events happening at the Six Flags parks in San Antonio and the Dallas area, it's important Houston gets represented. So step up and jump on board that hot tamale train with us.

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.

SYTYCD has posted three choreographed routines. We decided to stick with the easiest one, a salsa routine put together by SYTYCD judge Mary Murphy.

Practice 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.

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.
