Since 1982, the world is celebrating International Dance Day on April 29 every year. It was founded by the Dance Committee of ITI, a partner for the performing arts of UNESCO. This day is dedicated to the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810) who was the creator of modern ballet. Since its creation in 1982, the ITI select an outstanding dance personality to write a message on this special day each year. Later, the message is translated into various languages and circulated globally.
The day is a celebration for those who see the value and importance of dance as an art form. To celebrate this day, every year a ceremonial gala event is held by the Executive Council of the International Theatre Institute. Reportedly, the venue for this ceremony changes each year, but the celebrations as a whole can be enjoyed by anybody, anywhere. If you want to celebrate International Dance Day, here are a few images that you can send to your friends, family, and fellow dancers.
