Dance is a powerful art form that inspires, engages, empowers and motivates people towards greatness. Through the dedicated efforts of the dance community we can ensure that the global language of dance is sustained and continues its positive impact on lives young or old. The National Dance Week Foundation is a launching pad and community center for dancers to gather and unite, and through this interaction we teach understanding, appreciation and recognition of the art and power of dance.

 

HISTORY

National Dance Week was formed in 1981 when a group of dance-related organizations began a strong “grass roots” movement to bring greater recognition to dance. National Dance Week Foundation was established as a non-profit institution in 2011. Over the years, the organization’s dedication to its founding mission has inspired thousands of events during the ten-day annual celebration of National Dance Week in April, from gatherings in major cities to local showcases at small-town malls. These reflect the unique and creative abilities of the individuals and organizations who participate in an array of events, including the annual Dance Mob and annual Kick for Kindness Campaign, celebrating dance in unlimited ways throughout the year.

The NDWF Board consists of an Executive Director, Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer along with additional board members who head various committees. A volunteer workforce is also made up of NDWF Ambassadors from all facets of the dance world.
