It’s National Dance Day, and we can’t wait to put on our dancing shoes and head to Disney Parks! Do you have a favorite memory of dancing with your family during the parade, or performing on one of our stages with your dance troupe? There are so many reasons to celebrate the spirit of dance and how it connects us.

In honor of this national holiday, we’d love to share a few ways YOU can celebrate with Disney!
