National Dance Day was created to raise awareness about and encourage Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health, and we are happy to highlight such a worthy cause.
Back in 2010, Senator Eleanor Holmes Norton introduced the resolution in Congress, and the last Saturday in July was designated as an unofficial national holiday by Nigel Lythgoe, co-creator of “So You Think You Can Dance” and co-president of the Dizzy Feet Foundation.
Each year, various communities throughout the nation hold dance events to celebrate National Dance Day. Be sure to check out what might be available in your area.
Then brush off your dancing shoes and listen to this popular episode that includes many types of dance tunes. C’mon – let’s dance!
