American Dance Movement presents National Dance Day, inviting participants to learn original choreography and put their own spin on it. The routine aims to bring together dancers and dance enthusiasts around the globe to celebrate National Dance Day, as a form of exercise and expression. This year’s instructional video has a step-by-step tutorial of the dance. Everyone is encouraged to learn the routine in this video, record it and share this recording on TikTok or other social media.
“Dance is inclusive and is a great way for all ages and abilities to get up, get moving and have fun,” said Nigel Lythgoe, co-founder of American Dance Movement along with Adam Shankman. “Everyone, dancer and non-dancer alike, is able to participate in a variety of National Dance Day events, both in-person or virtually, this year.”
The Kennedy Center presents a weekend-long celebration, in conjunction with the Center’s 50th anniversary and Millennium Stage summer series, including a variety of free dance classes and performances for all ages and skill levels from organizations in the D.C. metropolitan area.
The day’s lineup at Segerstrom Center for the Arts features live performances by guest artists, inclusive and interactive dance lessons in a wide variety of dance styles and performance content from dance artists and organizations near and far.
