Dancing dentist of Innisfail

Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off will be held April 13


Isaac Day is enjoying all the smiles on people’s faces when they hear he is dancing in Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off 2019.

“Being a dentist, most people are pretty unhappy to see you. So it is nice to branch out into an area where people are happy to see you,” Day said with a laugh.

Day, founder of Day Dental in Innisfail, said just the other day, the cashier in a local grocery store asked him how his dance training was going.

“She wished me well and said — you got this. Being in a smaller community like Innisfail, I’ve really felt the support of the town.”

He said dancing has been more physically demanding than he expected, but a great, new way to have a good time. He now finds himself listening for the beat in every song.

“It’s been fun to be creative in a medium that I’m not used to. It’s been eye-opening and different.”

Day said when he gets nervous about his upcoming performance, he reminds himself that he has accomplished his fundraising goal.

“At the end of the day, I want to have fun, I want to put on a little bit of a show for my friends and family.”

While Day has never attended a Dance Off, he said so far, it’s been a rewarding experience and would recommend it to others.

“Had I known I was going to be doing it this year, I would have absolutely gone to the last few Dance Offs. Or maybe it’s good I have no clue,” he joked.
