The third Saturday in June is a special day for social dance.
Mayor John E. Dailey proclaimed it as USA Dance Day two years ago. USA Dance is a social dance organization, which board member Rebecca Kelley has served on for nearly four years. There are 17 chapters in the state of Florida alone, and countless across the country.
To commemorate the day in Tallahassee, Kelley and her fellow committee has planned the first ever Florida Sunshine Dance & Symposium, which will span three days and include a talent show, mini-match and evening dances.
On Saturday, the USA Dance national president Ken Richard will serve as keynote speaker and talk about navigating the future of social dance.
“Our organization wants to make Tallahassee a hub for ballroom dancing,” says Kelley. “After many board meetings, we came up with this “a la carte” event. It’s not a one size fits all and we did that on purpose.”
