The Coalition for National Dance Week was formed in 1981 by a group of dance related organizations that began a strong grass roots movement across the United States to bring greater recognition to dance as an art form. The grass root aspect of National Dance Week continues to the present and is the reason for the tremendous growth the annual celebration has seen over the years.

A volunteer work force is made up of National Dance Week delegates from all facets of the dance world. Events number in the thousands during the ten day annual celebration from kickoff events in major cities to local showcases at small town malls. The vast assortment of events and activities vary largely and are limited only by the creative abilities of those who participate. By spotlighting local dance educators and performers, the development of "Share American Dance With the World" theme can be taken to higher levels within the regions of America and spur all participants to continue sharing their gift of Dance.
