International Dance Day 2021 Posted On 29 April 2021

Celebrate thousands of years of dance today

 

International Dance Day is a global celebration of dance that was created by the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO – the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI).

The day is celebrated annually on April 29, which happens to be the birth anniversary of  Jean-Georges Noverre, the creator of modern ballet. The day aims to encourage participation and education in dance through events and festivals that are held all over the world.

The history of dance dates back thousands of years but the official Dance Day ceremonies were launched in 1982. Every year, an outstanding dance personality is selected to write a message for International Dance Day.

ITI also creates a flagship event in a selected host city, where dance performances, educational workshops, and humanitarian projects and speeches are made by dance personalities, dignitaries, and ambassadors.

The day is usually marked in many countries by gala events and stage performances by professional dance groups and experts.  If you are a pro dancer or part of a group, you can make short videos of your performance and upload them on social media for your viewers.

Conduct a 1-day dance workshop with enthusiasts over any video calling app or share some inspirational dance videos and tutorials with budding dancers.

If you are new to dance, try learning some new steps by looking at videos or study the history of dance.
