Press Release – National Dance Day is a grassroots initiative that encourages the nation, young and old, to move. Individuals, families, organizations and communities from across the nation come together through their creative expression in dance. Most importantly, the day is intended to promote health and wellness nationwide.

This event has been organized by Students’ C.R.E.A.T.E., a newly created non-profit organization designed to foster creative thinkers at the high school level and to provide opportunities for young people to directly share their work through public performances and displays.

The group is made up of current and past Easton Country Day high school students who live throughout Fairfield County. Any high school student can participate.

Events are organized all over the country, and take place at both large and small venues. Students’ C.R.E.A.T.E. wanted to organize an event that involves the entire community. “Can You Dance To It – The Macarena Project” is open to all ages.

This event was conceived and organized by student directors Lexi Foley of Easton and Tessa Zimmerman of Westport. Professional services are being donated by Barbara March, executive director of WingMedia, LLC, Matt Pagliaro, founder & CEO of Two Basses and a Harmonica Productions, LLC (filming and editing) and professional D.J. Denise Hoffman. Choreography assistance was provided by Caitlyn Gray of STEPS in New York City. The Easton Community Center is graciously hosting the event.
