Watch, learn, and dance at this community celebration of National Dance Day! Launched in 2010 by The Dizzy Feet Foundation (co-founded by So You Think You Can Dance’s Nigel Lythgoe and Adam Shankman) and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, National Dance Day encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health. Come as you are and soak up the summer with interactive routines and lessons, free outdoor performances, food available for purchase, and more, all culminating in a night of Dancing Under the Stars.

Be on the lookout for the full lineup of artists and activities, to be announced soon. Before joining the festivities, you can also learn this year’s official National Dance Day routine - the video is on its way! 

Event Notice: In case of inclement weather, the activities will continue indoors! Please check the Kennedy Center’s social media accounts for event updates.
