Significance and History of International Dance Day:
While Dance as an art or medium of expression has been around the block for thousands of years, International Dance Day is a recent phenomenon in comparison. The International Dance Committee collaborated with UNESCO and established International Dance Day. It was the year 1982 when it happened and the 29th of April was the chosen day for celebration. The birthday of the famous dancer Jean-Georges Noverre who created the modern ballet dance form falls on the same day and thus this date was chosen. The flash dance made its presence a year after the establishment of the day.
The main intention of International Dance Day is for celebrating dance, make people revel in the universality of the art form, cross all sorts of barriers, and bring people together through the common language of dance. Each year an amazing dancer or choreographer from any part of the world is selected by the International Dance Committee of ITI to write a message for the celebratory day which is then translated and transmitted around the world to dancers and dance lovers.
