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.
