Celebrating National Dance Day - With Sign (Detective Eyes #9)

As described by  calendar.com, "National Dance Day is observed each year on the last Saturday in July.  Created as a day to raise awareness about and encourage Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and combat obesity."


In our house, any bit of music is usually met with dance.  It doesn't matter if it's the radio, a TV commercial or a song we've chosen to play.  The dance might be just a little wiggle or an all out, full family room performance. While I'm treated to these feats on a daily basis, rarely am I lucky enough to catch them on video.

Today, as the US celebrates National Dance Day, I was lucky enough to catch my 2 year old, Mr. L. signing his celebration, though!  Do you see it?!

Even tiny infants sometimes bless us with their own dances.  What do your little ones love to dance to? What about you?

  1. How special you caught that on video! I know what you mean, as soon as I whip my camera out (or press record!) they are done doing whatever I wanted to catch on film!

    1. Every. Single. Time. Every now and again I can convince them to let me photograph or videotape whatever's gong on by letting them watch/see when we're done. They don't always understand there's nothing there until they actually DO the thing they were dong, though. Toddlers are a ball of fun! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What a special moment to share! My kids love dance too. One of the best moments of our holiday has been the kids disco. Seeing all those happy faces dancing away and all ages too. Special! Thanks for linking up to #fbfriday x

    1. What a fun time! We don't have anything like that for little ones, but I can only imagine it's quite a sight -they're so uninhibited at a young age, so anything goes! Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Oh my goodness, he is so cute! Clever boy and how lovely to finally catch it on video! We were recently at a 1940's weekend and people were dancing on the street and my 3yr old grabbed me to join in. He dances to literally anything! Thanks for linking up to #featurefridays

    1. So fun! I love how uninhibited kids are at that age - willing to just move to the music however it strikes them. Thanks for stopping by!
