Dance Day is back! The second annual National Dance Day will take place once
again on the last Saturday of July (July 30, 2011). In the near future, three
routines will be available right here on Fox.com/Dance so people of all
levels can join in on the fun.
“It’s a wonderful way to stay healthy and have fun whilst doing it,” National
Dance Day creator and SYTYCD Executive Producer/Judge Nigel Lythgoe said on
Thursday’s Top 20 results show.
WHAT: NATIONAL DANCE DAY, a grassroots initiative that encourages the nation,
young and old, to move! Individuals, families, organizations and communities
from across the nation come together through their creative expression in
dance. Any style of dance is welcome and imagination is recommended in order
to get the most out of this celebratory day.
WHEN: Saturday, July 30
WHY: To continue to generate national awareness for dance, a medium of
expression and storytelling which, through shows like So You Think You Can
Dance, has proven its value in bringing individuals from all walks of life
together through a positive platform that has no boundaries and cultivates
imagination and passion. Most importantly, the day is intended to promote
health and wellness nationwide.
National Dance Day was recognized by Congress last year. Learn more about the
movement brought to Washington, D.C. by Nigel Lythgoe and Congresswoman
Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC). Share your D-Day ideas in the SYTYCD forums and
