Why Dance Matters is a virtual event that rallies the dance community online. Bridging the gap between arts awareness campaigns such as Arts Advocacy Day (April 12), International Dance Day (April 29), National Dance Week (May 2), and National Dance Day, Why Dance Matters seeks to affirm the impact dance has on the lives of individuals and communities using social media.
Our inaugural event in 2010 attracted participants from all over the globe with 1000 Facebook attendees and a host of Twitter tweets using the hashtag #whydancematters.
