Dancing is a way of expressing an idea or emotion, releasing energy, or simply taking pleasure in the movement itself. In 2010 National Dance Day was created by American Dance Movement co-founder Nigel Lythgoe and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and was originally created to promote a different form of entertainment as well as physical fitness.
