Welcome to the Tennessee Association of Dance!

National Dance Day is this Saturday July 26th! Launched in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe this annual celebration encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity. Sanctioned by the Tennessee Association of Dance, in support of this day and our mission, local Memphis dance troupes will be teaching the “easy” dance this Saturday at 10:15 am at the Memphis Farmer’s Market downtown located at S Front St. at E Ge Patterson Ave. We hope to see you there!
