Free performances and demonstrations are planned Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Kennedy Center's Grand Foyer. Elfman and Stegall will offer group dance lessons.

Elfman is known for her role as Dharma in the TV series "Dharma and Greg." She began her career as a professional dancer. Stegall is a hip-hop dancer from Wichita, Kansas. He won season 10 of TV's "So You Think You Can Dance."

National Dance Day began as an annual celebration in 2010 to show how dance is a fun way to maintain good health and combat obesity. D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton helped launch the event with a congressional resolution.
