National Dance Day was created in 2010 by So You Think You Can Dance producer, Nigel Lythgoe, and takes place in the United States annually on the last Saturday in July. It was founded and officially recognized in 2010 when American congresswoman, Eleanor Holmes Norton, introduced a National Dance Day resolution to promote dance education and physical fitness.
