International Dance Day
The holiday was introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute . The date commemorates the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727 - 1810), the creator of modern ballet.
Among the goals of the Dance Day are to increase the awareness of the importance of dance among the general publes, as well as to persuade governments all over the world to provide a proper place for dance in all systems of education, from primary to higher.
