4.4 million people visited the first dance club in the United States in 2019, according to data from the National Dance Company, and another 5.3 million visited dance clubs in other countries in the first half of the year.
Thats a drop of 5.4% from the same period last year, when 7.6 million people went to dance clubs around the country.
But the dip is largely a result of dance clubs not opening in more urban areas, where more people are likely to go to bars and clubs.
In the first three months of 2020, dance clubs were open in more than 30% of the U.S. population, according the National Center for Health Statistics.
But in the second quarter of 2019, they were open just 13% of residents, according data from Dance Industry Week.
“I’m hoping it’ll start to pick up a little bit more,” said David Tull, a dance club owner and owner of the dance club, Roxy’s.
The dip is also a big disappointment to people who go to clubs for the dance, which is why some dance clubs are doing more to attract younger patrons.
Some dance clubs have tried to get older crowds in.
“There are a lot of people who want to dance at the same time, so they come to see a few of the big ones,” said Tull.
In March, the dance company announced a new event called the Dance Party, where older people can come to dance for free and play music.
The dance company also recently announced a two-week dance promotion, Dance Night, which will include free performances, free food, and free parking for all participants.
“The biggest thing we can do is try to get the more established clubs that have their own music and the DJ’s to bring the people in who have never been to a dance before,” said Kelly Johnson, a member of the National Alliance on Dance and Dance Music.
“And then they can also bring people in that have been dancing for years and never really thought about it, but they want to come and enjoy it,” Johnson said.
The Dance Party is the first of two new events planned for 2020.
In August, the National Endowment for the Arts will launch a new initiative to help young people learn how to code, the first step toward becoming a programmer.
“That’s a way of engaging younger people,” Johnson explained.
“We are seeing that there is a growing appetite for technology-driven entertainment and technology-enabled experiences.”
The other new initiative, the Dance Revolution, will include a free weekend in September, featuring live performances by artists such as Bijou, the rapper and producer, and other performers.
The event will also have a dance-themed dinner, where diners can enjoy a dinner and drink from the kitchen of the club and dance in a live DJ booth.
“It’s going to be a different experience, and I’m hoping that people will come in, and they will feel like they’re really in control of their time,” Johnson added.
“If you are able to make an investment in your own dance club and in your community, you are taking care of yourself and your community.”
But even as more people want to join in on the fun, the trend towards dance clubs has slowed down.
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, there were only 878 dance clubs nationwide in the fourth quarter of 2020.
This was down from 1,873 in the same quarter of last year.
The trend towards less dance venues also hasn’t affected the number of people that dance.
In April, the Federal Trade Commission announced that the number in the U, U.K., and France had all declined in the past two years.
But this has also been true for other major cities.
In February, there was a slight uptick in the number that went to clubs, but overall, dance attendance fell slightly, according a report from the Washington Post.
