International Dance Day
People reflect each other constantly, but when they dance, perhaps what they reflect most is that moment of honesty.
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, dancer and choreographer
International Dance Day was created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute ITI, the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO. This day is a celebration day for those who can see the value and importance of the art form “dance”, and acts as a wake-up-call for governments, politicians and institutions which have not yet recognised its value to the people and to the individual and have not yet realised its potential for economic growth.
