Greensburg Day of Dance coming Feb. 22


“By not hosting a featured performer,” she said, “we’re giving more people the opportunity to participate. We’re offering three times more demonstrations this year [compared to previous years].”

The 2014 DCMH SOW Day of Dance exhibitions will include strength, endurance and cardiovascular training, cycling, Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Swing Dancing, basketball, soccer, tee-ball and Jujitsu – among others. Activities that involve dancing will feature Merengue, Salsa, Cha Cha, Cumbia, Swing, Rock & Roll, Belly Dance, Flamenco, Tango, Indian and Calypso-style music.

This year’s Day of Dance will be held at the Decatur County Family YMCA, too, allowing for a host of swimming and water-centric activities, including swimming lessons, water exercise, aqua bootcamp, water jogging, aqua arthritis and others.

Wilkison stressed that day’s activities are being designed with a wide-range of age groups in mind. “Day of Dance is extremely family friendly,” she said, adding that activities will be available for infants, seniors and every age group in between. Men and women, boys and girls alike, she added, are also invited.

A number of no-cost health screenings will also be available during the 2014 Day of Dance, including screenings for blood-pressure, body mass index, neuropathy, blood sugar and others. The first 400 attendees will receive a free boxed lunch, Wilkison added, with door prizes and various giveaways also being given away.

“There really will be something at this year’s Day of Dance for everyone to participate in,” she said.

Wilkison has a longstanding relationship with the YMCA and added that holding an expanded Day of Dance there seemed like a no-brainer.

The YMCA facility allows SOW to serve both its members and the wider community, Wilkison said, by introducing attendees to programs, classes, facilities and equipment available at the YMCA. In so doing, Wilkison hopes Day of Dance attendees will explore the Y further.

The 2014 DCMH Spirit of Women Day of Dance will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Feb. 22, at the Decatur County Family YMCA. located at 1301 Kathy's Way, Greensburg. For more information, call SOW at 812-663-1325 or 812-663-1389 or the YMCA at 812-663-9622.
