National Dance Day, a grassroots movement to encourages the people of this nation to get up and move. Created by Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer and co-creator of the hit FOX series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and founder of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, the aim of National Dance Day is to promote health and self-esteem through dancing and moving.
Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles passed an act in Congress last July to officially promote dance education and physical fitness across the U.S.
In January, Congresswoman Norton introduced the Lifelong Improvements in Food and Exercise (LIFE) Act to promote exercise and diet changes. Norton?s LIFE bill directs the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be a lead agency in combating obesity and sedentary lifestyles.
?More than 30 percent of Americans are obese, and childhood obesity has tripled in the past 30 years,? said Norton. ?Television shows such as SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE are not only entertaining but are also encouraging people to live a physically active lifestyle. Holding a National Dance Day in the nation?s capital is a terrific way to promote fitness and fight obesity.?
Let's Move! LET's DANCE!
