National Dance Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the last Saturday in July. This program encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and combat obesity. NDD achieved national recognition when Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, announced at a press conference on July 31, 2010, in Washington, D.C., that she was introducing a congressional resolution declaring the last Saturday in July to be the country’s official National Dance Day.  This event will be great for all ages and wonderful family activity.
 
The Terre Haute Parks Department will be participating in National Dance Day again this year.  It will take place on July 27, 2019.  This year it will be held at Herz-Rose Park as we are offering National Dance Day for FREE at Hamilton's Centers Annual We Live Event.  The instructors will teach the dance during the event. There will be a final performance for friends, family, and the community to see at 1:30-1:45 pm. For more information contact the Torner Center at 812-232-0147.
