Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe believes heavily in dance’s ability to affect and improve people’s lives, which is why he co-founded the Dizzy Feet Foundation. Now, he’s teaming up with Larry King and The Larry King Cardiac Foundation to launch a brand new project, Dance 4 Your Life.

Their mission is to encourage a healthy lifestyle and mindset by way of dance. Nigel believes that promoting dance as a fun and effective way to exercise will aid in the fight against America’s obesity epidemic. In collaboration with National Dance Day on July 30, 2011, Dance 4 Your Life will provide information and dance-related events at Six Flags amusement parks across the country to improve the health of America.
