Lifestyle Fitness...The Pulse of Our Community!
Celebrate National Dance Day on July 30th!
Free Health & Wellness Event on the 3rd Street Promenade
The Health and Fitness Festival is an annual event hosted by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Santa Monica, to bring the community together for a day of exercise, education, and fun.
This year’s Festival coincides with National Dance Day, a grassroots initiative created by So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer and Judge Nigel Lythgoe, that encourages physical activity for all ages through dance. To celebrate this important initiative, the Festival will feature a special appearance by former So You Think You Can Dance contestant, and renowned “B-boy,” “Machine” Jeffery McCann.
Jeffery, and his Los Angeles-based dance company West Bound, will lead the audience in a routine created by two So You Think You Can Dance choreographers specifically for National Dance Day, followed by a performance by West Bound.
Besides giving attendees the opportunity to go “dancing in the streets,” the Santa Monica Health and Fitness Festival will offer a variety of family friendly and free exercise classes throughout the day including boxing, martial arts, yoga and Zumba.
In addition, P90X fitness phenomenon Tony Horton will be making a special appearance to teach his workout for a killer body.
Since a healthy lifestyle incorporates more than just fitness, the Santa Monica Health and Fitness Festival has partnered with over 70 local nonprofits and healthcare companies to distribute important health information, and to answer questions about diet, exercise and prevention. Free screenings for skin cancer and blood pressure will also be provided.
