KIRKWOOD, MO (KTVI) – The Magic House is partnering with The Big Muddy Dance Company for a toe-tapping, leg-kicking, heart-pounding dance extravaganza at the Museum's Fitness Fun Friday on May 3 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.

The Big Muddy Dance Company is a professional dance company based in St. Louis specializing in an eclectic mix of contemporary, jazz and Broadway styles.

They will be at The Magic House showcasing some of their most popular dances including Punctuations, The Sleepy Dancer, The "40's" and Tango.

After the performance, kids will have the opportunity to get up on their feet as they learn a sampling of dance steps from professional dancers and then "free dance" to music.

Sponsored by Centene Corporation, Fitness Fun Fridays take place on the first Friday evening of every month from 4:00 to 8:00 pm and feature a variety of fun health and fitness activities with different themes and partners each month.
