"Dance Your Way To Health 2012" Rocks the Ritz Plaza

A lively entertaining dance team transformed Stonehenge's Ritz Plaza Park into a dance mecca to promote a healthy body and healthy mind on Saturday, October 20, 2012.  “Dance Your Way to Health 2012” was a free community event by hosts, New Yorker Social Dance Club and Stonehenge NYC, along with sponsor Natural Awakenings Magazine to show that being healthy can mean being happy and having fun while doing so.  Residents, pedestrians and onlookers could not help but stop and notice the engaging performances and toe tapping beats that were bellowing out of the Mid-town park on to 48th Street.

Children, families, elders, all ages and cultures enjoyed participating in group dances, watching the professional dance performances and chatting with the healthy living vendors that were there, including Rebecca Spath of Breathing Room Therapies / USANA, Dr. Park of Vemma, Naturopath Dr. Ivy Branin of Simplicity Health Associates, Schweta of Ayurveda Healing Center of 96th St, and NYPD.

Dimitrios Damalas, co-owner of New Yorker Social Dance Club states “Dancing is by far the greatest investment you can make for your body, mind and spirit. One lifestyle change that will last for a lifetime!”. Dimitrios and the other dance professionals from NYSDC welcome you to a free private lesson at their dance studio at 335 W. 35th Street with mention of Natural Awakenings Magazine.
