American Dance Movement (ADM), formerly the Dizzy Feet Foundation, has released the official 2019 National Dance Day routine, choreographed by internet sensation, Matt Steffanina and set to Dua Lipa’s popular electric dance hit, “Electricity.” ADM recently announced a new date for National Dance Day, to be celebrated annually on the third Saturday of September. The move will begin this year, on Saturday, Sept. 21.
In an instructional video, Steffanina, the most “followed” dancer in the world with more than 10 million subscribers on YouTube and over 1.5 billion views, teaches National Dance Day participants the various steps to the routine alongside other well-known dancers, including The Rollettes founder Chelsie Hill; “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 15 champion Hannahlei Cabanilla; and Jashaun Gamble, among others. The video features different versions of the routine, with translated steps, in an effort to include participants of all abilities and skill levels.
Each year, American Dance Movement creates an instructional dance video of the National Dance Day routine that offers participants an opportunity to learn original choreography, uniting dancers and dance enthusiasts everywhere, by performing it wherever they are as part of National Dance Day. This year’s routine is available on the organization’s YouTube channel and website athttp://bit.ly/AmericanDanceMovement.
Anyone may participate in National Dance Day by taping a video of themselves or their group doing the choreographed routine and sharing on social media with the hashtag #dancemademedoit. Dance Day participants may challenge other people and groups to participate by tagging them on social media with the challenge as part of ADM’s “Watch. Create. Share. Donate.” campaign.
Participants may also become community partners and register their local events through ADM’s National Registry of Events on the website. These grassroots activations support ADM’s mission to provide free access to dance and to encourage Americans across the country to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to promote self-expression and exercise.
National Dance Day events will be held from coast to coast with activations at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. These activations include free dance classes and performances for all ages and skill levels, ranging from modern dance to tap, traditional Chinese ribbon dance, Caribbean Dancehall, salsa, stretch and others; along with dance film screenings and performances from local, national and international stars.
