Dd is pleased to announce 20/20, our dance video countdown to National Dance Day on July 27th. For the next nineteen days we will be posting a dance video to our site every day, curated by our own editorial staff and contributors from the likes of TenduTV, DancePulp, and Under One as well as from choreographers around the country. On the twentieth day, we will feature a dance video (or two) curated from reader submissions. You can send us links to your nomination for the Dd video of National Dance Day three ways:

*via email to [email protected]

*via comment on any 20/20 post over the month

*via twitter to @diydancer using hashtags #Ddcountdown #nationaldanceday #2020


In the meantime, this Day 1 video from the judges of SYTYCD might invite a video reply–a sincere performance or parody of Adam Shankman’s Everybody Dance combo? We are open to all interpretations of our art form on the screen.

Help us spread the word about National Dance Day by nominating a dance video or sharing one of our upcoming 20/20 video posts!
