Csu National Fitness Day, Staying Alive Dance Event is Feb. 18

Participants at Colorado State University’s second annual Staying Alive Event will learn the dance to "Staying Alive" from 7:30-9 p.m. on Feb. 18. The event commemorates National Recreational Sports and Fitness Day by teaching participants the "Staying Alive" dance from the movie "Saturday Night Fever." The event is free to the Colorado State community but individuals must be at least 16 years old to participate. No prior registration is necessary.

Participants are invited to don their best 70’s attire and prizes will be awarded in a "Best John Travolta" look-alike contest. Winners will be decided by the fitness staff and applause from the "Staying Alive" participants.

CSU group fitness staff will lead the instruction to the "Staying Alive" dance. The routine is systematically broken into small segments and taught piece-by-piece to make it accessible, even for the novice disco dancer.

The event is coordinated by Campus Recreation’s fitness program. Through its programming, it aims to enhance the lifestyles of CSU students through health and fitness opportunities. The "Staying Alive" event offers an opportunity to endorse healthy living through an alternative and dynamic group exercise setting.
