Froderman is the winner of season 7 of “So You Think You Can Dance” (SYTYCD). She came to National Dance Day last year and was a phenomenal guest and teacher. She is returning this year as the event moves indoors and over to Beaumont.

The main event is 9 a.m.-noon and is free to the public. The Civic Center will be cleared for lunch and ticketed events of dance classes and a meet in greet with Froderman and Stockett are scheduled for the afternoon.

The main event is a celebration of dance with performances by area dance groups, lots of line dancing and audience participation, plus the official 2017 National Dance Day choreography. It is sort of a recital/dance party.

Those wishing to observe the dance classes must purchase a meet and greet ticket for $25 or $35 after July 23. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
