KMG Creations Dance, Fitness, &
Production, LLC will be celebrating its 9th Annual Dancing in
the Park Community event Saturday, July 28, 2018 at the large pavilion at McKee
Park in Starkville. First celebrated in 2010, first started the event
to memorialize KMG Creations owner and dance instructor, Kayla Marie's sister and niece.
Starting at 9:00 am and lasting until
1:00pm, Dancing in the Park will be a free event that community members young
and old are encouraged to attend with a free healthy lunch while supplies last.
Numerous dance styles will be represented by the various Mississippi artists in
attendance. Dancing in the Park will also
promote other aspects of art by having booths with exhibits. Activity booths will include painting, voice,
crafting, and photography. Attracting around 300 attendees each year, Dancing
in the Park also celebrates National Dance Day.
Upon it’s creation years ago the event just happened to coincide with the first National Dance Day
and has been held that day annually ever since to join with dancers of every
background across the nation to celebrate the creativity of dance. National Dance Day was created by Nigel
Lythgoe, executive producer and judge for the television series, So You Think You Can Dance, for the
purpose of encouraging Americans to embrace dance as a fun way to maintain good
health and fight obesity.
