Dance Walk:Beat MS-Gratitude Day

Happy World Gratitude Day and last day of summer!


The 1st annual Beat MS Dance Walk takes place tomorrow where artists, dancers and people who want to make a positive difference dance and walk towards a cure for multiple sclerosis.  If you are in the LA area tomorrow check out joining the National MS Society, Courtney Galiano and Philip Byron to help end and raise awareness about multiple sclerosis.

You may recognize Courtney’s name from her association with “So You Think You Can Dance.”  Her courage in sharing her multiple sclerosis diagnosis as a professional dancer and her willingness to do something about it is a shining inspiration.

Other “SYTYCD” dancers involved with the event are Chelsie Hightower, Mark Kanemura, Neil Haskell, Dominic Sandoval, Comfort Fedoke, Robert Roldan, Kathryn McCormick, Marko Germar, Jeanine Mason and Ashley Galvan.

I am so thankful for the power of movement whether it be walking or dancing to express emotions, entertain and engage an audience to do something positive!

Many of the “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers among other brilliant artists are nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Choreography.  The 65th prime-time Emmy awards airs live tomorrow starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.  To watch all the nominated dance numbers click here. One of my favorite numbers is “Circle of Life” choreographed by NappyTabs.

What are you thankful for?
