Hamilton National Dance Day

September 2019

Hamilton National Dance Day is a celebration of culture through dance in Central New York. It will consist of a series of workshops and classes, culminating in a variety show where all of the attendees can participate. 
Sponsored by Hamilton National Dance Day Inc. 


A village transformed into a dance theater. Flashes of all types of dance abound, with the beats of hip-hop, jazz, bachata, and dancehall. People of all ages, ethnic groups, and skill levels can be seen enjoying the experience of dance. You are a part of the collective experience. All around you people are breaking out into dance, both spontaneous and choreographed.

We invite you to be a part of that dance experience at Hamilton National Dance Day. Dance like no one is watching. Dance because it is an extension of the infinite universe. Dance! Dance! Dance!

Dance is a universal language.  When spoken words fall short, non-verbal communication can make up the difference. Hamilton National Dance Day is an expression of ideas and thoughts conveyed through dance under the theme Bridging Gaps, Fostering Relationships and Transforming through Dance.

To assist in manifesting great positive societal change so needed in our society, we must boldly begin to have active conversations with each other in an honest and open manner. America’s challenges are its large and diverse ethnic groups. There is an opportunity to break down barriers and open communication through dance.

Dance is a universal language. Tapping into an aspect of communication that all people can understand, Hamilton National Dance Day will not only be a celebration of dance, it will also be a vehicle to bring people together across cultures and boundaries to share in a common experience.

It is an initiative that demonstrates the universality of dance. It is both a celebration of dance and a collective expression of cultures in a village environment.
