#ThankADanceTeacherDay is a global movement to shine the spotlight on dance education and the teachers who make it possible. It was started in 2014 by the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) to raise awareness of the benefits of dance education through social media. A quality dance education can have a life-changing impact on students, providing physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and psychological benefits.
Create your own thank-you message or story about a special dance teacher that had a positive impact on YOUR life and post it on your personal social media accounts using the hashtag #ThankADanceTeacherDay on Thursday, May 4, 2023.
Thank A Dance Teacher Day is a program of the National Dance Education Organization, and this year we are honored that DanceTeacher.com wrote an article about Thank a Dance Teacher Day -- READ it HERE.
In the past we've teamed up with CLI Studios to help spread the word and recognize the importance of dance teachers in the lives of their students.
Share your story of how a dance teacher has impacted your life on social media on Thursday, May 5, 2022 by using the hashtag #ThankADanceTeacherDay
NDEO urges dance enthusiasts of all kinds (dancers, former dancers, current students, teachers, dance dads & moms, fans, etc.) to participate in Thank a Dance Teacher Day by sharing their "thank a dance teacher" story on social media.
