Summary
A day to encourage the participation and education of dance through events and festivals held during this date around the world.


The International Dance Day was created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute ITI, the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO in 1982.

It was chosen on April 29th because it was the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, innovator, and scholar of this art, teacher, and creator of modern ballet.

This celebration strives to encourage the participation and education of dance through events and festivals held during this date around the world.

  • Did you know? When the Swedish-Italian ballerina Marie Taglioni made her last appearance at St. Petersburg in 1842, a group of her fanatical fans bought her old shoes, cooked them in a special sauce and ate them.
