Bham Dance Walk – Railroad Park

We’re back! Our first dance walk of 2019 will be 2pm on Sunday, March 24th at Railroad Park. We’ll meet on the grass across from the Boxcar Cafe (which is located under the 17th Street Plaza covered area). Just look for the balloons!

What is Dance Walking? It’s a fun fitness craze sweeping the globe. We are dancing and walking our way through Birmingham on a quest for fun, people, music, and FITNESS! Everyone is welcome and all ages are encouraged to join!*

We’ll provide music via megaphones throughout the dance walk, but feel free to bring your own or listen with some ear buds. Who cares as long as you’re moving! We’ll dance walk around the park until we’ve had our fill. Maybe it will end in a dance party in one of the rainbow tunnels!
