Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
Barely out of diapers since its founding in 2005, Baby Loves Disco (http://www.babylovesdisco.com) has become an international family dance party phenomenon, with more than 25 U.S. cities hosting parties this fall, and several new locations in the UK, Tokyo, Tel Aviv and Stockholm, among other cities.
This month, the family friendly dance party craze will reach to new levels as Baby Loves Disco and stride-rite host the second annual "Best Little Dancer in America Contest" (BLD USA) http://www.babylovesdisco.com/bldusa/. Featured at 12 Baby Loves Disco events across the country, the contests will be judged by expert dance instructors and will feature tiny dancers in two categories: infant to 3 years old and 4-7 years old. Videos of the local winners will be featured on the Baby Loves Disco website in October and the world will vote for a national champion. Everyone's a winner at BLD USA, and every participant will go home with prizes and goodies. Last year's BLD USA saw thousands of kids on club dance floors across the country, shaking their booties and having fun with family and friends.
The following cities will participate in this year's Best Little Dancer in the USA contest:
- Boston - September 28, Revolution Rock Bar
- Brooklyn - September 6 - Southpaw
- Charlotte - September 20 -- Can's Bar & Canteen
- Chicago - September 14 - Club Metro
- Dallas - September 27 - Purgatory Dallas
- Detroit - September 21 - Crofoot
- Minneapolis - September 6 - Trocaderos
- NYC - September 21 - (Le) Poisson Rouge
- Orlando - September 28 - Club Firestone
- Philadelphia - September 7 - Shampoo Nightclub
- Portland - September 28 - Wonder Ballroom
- San Francisco - September 27 - Ruby Skye
A portion of all proceeds from these events (and much of the local focus) will go to BLD's charity of choice - Alex's Lemonade Stand (http://www.alexslemonade.org), a foundation that evolved from a 4 year old cancer patient's front yard lemonade stand to a nationwide fundraising movement to find a cure for childhood cancer.
Once again, stride rite, premium footwear for babies through big kids and a favorite among moms, is the presenting co-sponsor for the Best Little Dancer in America contest in support of Baby Month. "We are so excited to be apart of the Baby Loves Disco event and even more excited to be the presenting sponsor of the Dance Contest. At stride rite, it is our mission to support active kids in all that they do with proper fitting footwear. We know that good health starts early and with our collaboration with BLD we are giving parents the tools to help their kids be active and get up and get moving as a family," says stride rite director of marketing, Rachel Panetta.
