The National Dance Day event here in the district is being hosted by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.
She introduced a resolution to officially recognize July 31st as National Dance Day and to promote physical fitness across the U.S.
That's in keeping with the First Lady's "Let's Move" campaign.
