Rhythm Abroad Celebrates National Dance Day

Los Angeles – July 28, 2012 – Travel host, Brittany Pierce, took to the streets of Los Angeles to promote Rhythm Abroad at National Dance Day hosted by the Dizzy Feet Foundation. The event was held at the newly reopened Grand Park in Los Angeles. National Dance Day was created by Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer and co-creator of the hit FOX series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE to promote health and self-esteem through the art form of dance.

In keeping with the spirit of the Rhythm Abroad concept, Brittanydanced the Latin-inspired Zumba routine among several hundred people. Brittanywas excited to be a part of the national celebration. “It was thrilling to be dancing with so many different people in unison. It really didn’t matter if you knew all the steps or not, it was just about getting out there and enjoying your own rhythm. That’s what Rhythm Abroad is all about.”

Rhythm Abroad

Rhythm Abroad is a new PBS travel series that is sure to transport viewers into the heart and soul of a culture. Brittanytravels around the world connecting with people through dance and music. In each episode, she tries doing the local dance herself even if she looks like a blundering amateur at times. She finds dance and music to be the universal languages that bridges cultural divides and unites humanity.
