About National Dance Day
Launched in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” (SYTYCD) co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe, National Dance Day (NDD) is an annual celebration that takes place on the last Saturday in July. This grassroots campaign encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity. NDD is the only official day in the US that is devoted to dance, it signifies an opportunity for everyone around the country to get up, celebrate dance and have some fun doing it.
Like Us on Facebook to get updates on special features, prizes, and the official National Dance Day videos of the beginner, intermediate and advanced dances we will be working on!
