SHAPE America is an organization of physical education and activity, sport, dance, and school health professionals. Standing for Society of Health and Physical Educators, they coordinate resources, compile standards, promote research, award excellence, and host conferences and workshops to help practitioners improve their skills “to further the health and well-being of the American public.”

Previous to December 2013 SHAPE America was known as the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), an organization that grew and expanded over the last century.
