This year marks the 25th Anniversary of National Tap Dance Day, a legislation passed by the United States Congress in 1989. We are happy to celebrate this special occasion with two special announcements.
Leading up to Tap Dance Day, Tap Legacy launched a Thunderclap Campaign in an attempt to get #tapdance to trend. We did it! We reached our campaign goal of more than 500 supporters and with them will have sent #tapdance to more than 1.6 million connections. This is the first social media celebration to celebrate Tap Dance Day and we’re so thankful for everyone who joined to make it a great success!
Today we are also very pleased to launch a site dedicated to Tap Dance Day, now a global phenomenon. The site includes the full text of the original legislation that established National Tap Dance Day as law, as well as a recounting of how the legislation came to be.
We’re always glad to have a reason to celebrate this art form that we all love. Happy 25th National #TapDance Day!!!
