International Dance Day is celebrated on 29 April every year, and commemorates the birthday of French dancer, ballet master and reformer Jean-Georges Noverre. This year’s IDD message is by South African dance activist Gregory Maqoma.
“We are living through unimaginable tragedies, in a time that I could best describe as the posthuman era. More than ever, we need to dance with purpose, to remind the world that humanity still exists.”
World Dance Alliance is a member of the International Dance Committee of International Theater Institute (ITI).
