What is National Dance Day?

Established in 2010 by American Dance Movement co-founder, Nigel Lythgoe, and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. By creating a focused day of celebration to show support for dance as a valuable form of exercise and of artistic expression, American Dance Movement aims to educate the public about dance and its many benefits, as well as make dance accessible and inclusive to everyone.

American Dance Movement (ADM) believes that participation in dance connects the mind and body, promotes health and wellbeing, connects us with others and enables us to find joy through dance and movement. National Dance Day (NDD) is a day of celebrating dance, in all its forms, and takes place annually on the third Saturday in September.

Accessible to everyone at every ability level, National Dance Day provides:

  • An instructional video, made available online, for people to view, learn and share with others wherever they are
  • American Dance Movement Co-Hosted events in two key cities, providing free dance classes and performances for all ages and skills levels, with information from a range of community dance organizations
  • Nation-wide Event Registration that encourages and supports individuals & communities, as they celebrate NDD
  • Strong online presence, allowing everyone to participate, no matter where they are across America

Learn the National Dance Day Choreography

Each year the Dizzy Feet Foundation produces and distributes instructional video/s featuring dance routines offering participants, across the United States, a free opportunity to learn an original choreography, uniting dancers and dance enthusiasts everywhere, by performing it wherever they are as part of a national day of dance.

Created by well-known choreographers and featuring dancers from popular dance TV shows & movies, the National Dance Day routine is aimed at a range of dance abilities to ensure everyone can participate.

NDD 2019 choreography video will be posted soon!
