On 29 April 2016, International Dance Day is celebrated all over the world, as dancers rejoice and share their passions and creativity with millions of people. The day brings together international, national and local organizations, as well as selected individuals active in dance, both amateurs and professionals.
In 1982, the International Theatre Institute (ITI), a partner of UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on 29 April on the anniversary of the birth date of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. The purpose of the International Dance Day is to celebrate Dance, to rejoice in the universality of the art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and to bring people together with a common language—Dance. The International Dance Council (CID), another partner of UNESCO, also supports and promotes the art of dance worldwide.
