VIDEO: Gearing Up For National Dance Day

Around here, it's no big deal to see my co-worker Craig Hlavaty walking around in a Misfits shirt. But when he walks around with a Misfits shirt and a tulle scarf, you know something big is going on.

Yesterday, I got to watch Hlavaty and his Aussie friend Daniel Aaron get ready for National Dance Day, which is July 30. In case you haven't heard, Art Attack is hosting an event that day at 10 a.m. for experienced dancers and novices alike to dance with each other.

We've already posted the official dance instruction video (choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy), but to help less-experienced dancers out, we decided to make an instructional video of our own.


Needless to say, after watching this, you should have no shame about coming out and dancing an easy salsa with us.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our instructional video, which we will post tomorrow. For more information on the event, click here.
