Break out those dancing shoes and come shake your groove thing with us! National Dance Day GSO is an annual celebration of coming together through dance. Join professional dancers representing a variety of cultural styles and genres on the dance floor to learn from and dance alongside one another. Food trucks and vendors will also be on-site, adding to the festival feel as we dance together under strands of international flags and Janet Echelman’s aerial sculpture, Where We Met.
