Isadora Duncan, José Limón, Katherine Dunham, and Bob Fosse crafted deeply personal, yet universal, works of art that forever transformed the art of dance. And on July 18, stamps honoring these four legends of choreography will be announced on America’s favorite summer series, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. Tune in to FOX this Wednesday at 8/7c, to see a live preview of the Innovative Choreographers stamps.
Plus, mark your calendar for the National Dance Day celebration presented by The Music Center and the Dizzy Feet Foundation on Saturday, July 28. Join Nigel Lythgoe, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE co-creator, executive producer, and judge, and Ruth Goldway, U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission Chairman, for the day's events including the First Day of Issue of the Innovative Choreographers stamps. The ceremony will take place at 10:00 a.m. at Los Angeles County’s Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles.
In addition to the stamp ceremony, enjoy fabulous dance performances and follow along with some of your favorite dancers from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and amazing talent from Zumba Fitness® as they lead the crowd in the official National Dance Day routines.
But the fun doesn’t stop there — plan on sticking around until 2:30 p.m. for free dance classes for all ages and exciting performances by some of the best and brightest young dance talent in Los Angeles!
If you're not on the West Coast, you can still participate! National Dance Day celebrations are being held across the U.S., and of course, the Innovative Choreographers stamps will be available nationwide.
