National Dance Day – Last Saturday in July


National Dance Day is observed each year on the last Saturday in July.  Created as a day to raise awareness about and 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, 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, an “unofficial” national holiday, was launched in 2010 by  “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe.
