I checked in to find out more about International Dance Day. "In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate dance, revel in the universality of this art form, cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a common language - dance." Wonderful.
I also read that every year a message from an outstanding choreographer or dancer is circulated throughout the world. This year it was given by Friedemann VOGEL, Ballet Dancer. The content is given from the link below.
