National Dance Day was launched in 2010 by Nigel Lythgoe, the co-creator of So You Think You Can Dance in partnership with American congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton of the District of Columbia. National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives.

Come celebrate National Dance Day and the new USPS Forever stamp celebrating Gregory Hines. Watch a Tap Dance performance Knock on Wood Tap Dance Studio and Capital Tap and District Tap companies featuring Baakari Wilder and learn a few moves. This is the perfect fun activity for the whole family. The performance will be followed by a workshop and audience participation. Tap shoes provided, but please wear socks.

It will be toe tapping fun! All ages welcome.
