    Male Dancer Tries Out for Miami Heat Dance Team (And Kills It!)

    Male dancer, Keith Wilson, blew his competition out of the water with his amazing dance moves at the Miami Heat dancer auditions on August 2. Unfortunately, his attempt to become the first male member of the Miami Heat’s all-female dance team was unsuccessful, as the team said they are not open to accepting a male dancer at this time. But it wasn’t a total loss — the video of Keith’s dance from the freestyle round quickly went viral, giving him and his stellar moves the recognition they deserve.

    Dancing is a great way to lose weight, stay active and maintain your health. But when you want to take your dancing skills to the next level, you need to occasionally look beyond the dance floor. Practice is the No. 1 way to improve your dancing. But there are also three areas you can focus on in your workouts to improve your ability to dance.

  • Get out your dancing shoes and clear off your calendar! Saturday, July 25 is National Dance Day, which means a day of moving, grooving and exercise! National Dance Day was created back in 2010 by Nigel Lythgoe of “So You Think You Can Dance” as a way to promote dancing as a fun, expressive way to stay fit and be social.

    Lythgoe is also the co-creator of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which promotes dance throughout the nation through various events, fundraising and community programs. The website features instructional videos for beginner and advanced dance routines, taught by stars from “So You Think You Can Dance.” The dance routines are set to the hit song “Shut Up and Dance” by rising artists WALK THE MOON.

    Last year, National Dance Day events were held in Grand Park of Los Angeles, Jacksonville Landing in Jacksonville, Florida, and even The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Cities and small towns across the countries got to celebrate the day thanks to local dance studios and gyms that held their own events.
