Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL DANCE DAY – Third Saturday in September

National Dance Day - Third Saturday in September


National Dance Day is observed each year on the third Saturday in September. 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.


Turn on a favorite song and dance.  Post on social media using #NationalDanceDay to encourage others to do so as well.


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 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
