Whitney Thore, from TLC’s “My Big Fat Fabulous Life” to Visit the National Museum of Dance

The National Museum of Dance and School of the Arts are excited to welcome Whitney Thore on Saturday, August 15th! Whitney Thore is a dancer, seen most recently on TLC’s hit show, My Big Fat Fabulous Life. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome and struggling to find self-acceptance after gaining a large amount of weight from the disease, Whitney eventually turned back to her life-long passion for dance as a means of healing. Now that she is coping with her disease, her passion for the art is as strong as ever as she continues to learn to love herself and her body, and encourage others to do the same.

We invite you to join Whitney at the National Museum of Dance on Saturday, August 15 as she talks to those in attendance about the ideals and values both she and her No Body Shame campaign hold true. In conjunction with her talk, Whitney will also be performing a piece of never before seen choreography unique to the National Museum of Dance and her visit. Finally, join us after her talk to meet Whitney, and join her in an aerobic dance class. This event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6 pm with the event beginning at 7 pm. To register for the class, visit www.dancemuseum.org.
