Today (April 29) is International Dance Day.
Here is some background information on International Dance Day (World Dance Day) from the International Theater Institute’s website…
“In 1982 the Dance Committee of the ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. 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.”
The Archives Online Image Gallery has some pretty neat photos of Kingsporters dancing, so in honor of International Dance Day take a look or you could just get up and dance!
