History of National Dance Week: We are pleased to announce the fifth annual National Dance Week, Oregon's only citywide dance celebration. National Dance Week was formed in 1981 when a group of dance-related organizations began a strong grassroots movement to bring greater recognition to dance in the United States. Celebrations now occur throughout the nation. We believe in the transformative power of dance and its role as an artistic expression to bring us together for moments of unity and provide opportunities to share and honor each other.
