The Charlottesville downtown mall turned into a dance studio Saturday.

Dancers from all different genres took the stage at Charlottesville's first-ever day of the dance.      Performances included ballet, tap dancing, and aerial moves.

The festival's director says she chose the downtown mall for Saturday's event because it is easily accessible and attracts a lot of traffic.

"So often, you only see these things if you've deliberately sought them out and so you may not even know that all of this dance is here and we have so much cultural dance and so much social dance and classically trained dance," said Megan Hillary, the Day of Dance director. "There's so many resources here and we want to drag them out where people can find them."

There were also workshops for anyone interested in learning some dance moves.

The Charlottesville Day of Dance lasts until 10 p.m. Saturday night.
