"Day of Dance" stresses exercise for heart health

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Get up and get moving is the message from the dance floor at this year's Day of Dance at the Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg. Sponsored by Forrest General Hospital, dancers from a variety of genres showed folks it doesn't take much to dance your way to better heart health.

Free health screenings and assessments were also available.

"This is a National Day of Dance held at about 80 locations across the Unites States and we're just thrilled to be a part of it, to teach people to exercise you don't have to be on a treadmill," said Kathy Emmons, coordinator for this year's Day of Dance. 

This was the seventh year for the event.
