NATIONAL DANCE DAY
National Dance Day is observed each year on the last Saturday in July. Created as a day to raise awareness about and to encourage Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and combat obesity.
National Dance Day achieved national recognition when in 2010, a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, American Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, introduced a National Dance Day resolution to promote dance education and physical fitness.
HOW TO OBSERVE

National Dance Day was launched in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe.
There are over 1,200 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
