International Dance Day is celebrated every year April 29th

Every year a message from an outstanding choreographer or dancer is circulated throughout the world. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate Dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language – Dance.
