International Dance Day celebrates dance in all its genre’s and art forms, and, in every way that dance can possibly be, as a social expression. Dance is truly a language that is free of borders and cultures.
Each year, on 29 April, dancers, choreographers, teachers and any other dance-related professionals and amateurs alike, get together to celebrate. And dance.
The date was chosen by the Dance Committee of the International Dance Committee of the International Theater Institute because it represents the date in 1727 when Jean-Georges Noverre, the creator of the modern ballet, was born.
The world has been celebrating International Dance Day since 1982.
