September 18 - National Dance Day

What Is National Dance Day?

National Dance Day raises awareness for dance as a form of exercise and fitness. National Dance Day also reminds us that dance is a fun and positive way to maintain healthy bodies through movement. Dancing is a great cardiovascular activity. You don’t need to have the speed of Fred Astaire, the creativity of Michael Jackson or the grace of Anna Pavlova to enjoy dancing. It can adapted to suit all types of body shapes, sizes, and ages. It can be low or high impact, and there are also dances that are beginner-friendly to learn. Dancing improves heart health, balance, muscle tone, among many other benefits. Joining a dance club is also a great way to meet new people and make new friends, whether you choose to do it socially or competitively. With so many different types of dance, there is bound to be something for you and your family to enjoy.
