International Dance Day is celebrated every year: on April 29th, the same date as the anniversary of the Jean Georges Noverre birth, the modern Ballet creator. It's a global celebration of dance created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute. And since 1982, a dance personality is selected to write a message for International Dance Day.

This day is all about the values, importance, and history of the art of dance.

I had no idea that there was a day dedicated to dance. I am afraid that I am a terrible dance and if I was to celebrate it I would have probable to be completely alone and dance when nobody is watching, haha.
