Today – April 29 – is International Dance Day. Held world wide every year on the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, a French choreographer who revolutionized ballet production during the 18th Century, this day encourages all of us to engage with dance.
This year’s International Dance Day message is by Flemish Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and it’s incredibly relevant to all aspects of our lives.
I also highly recommend the Canadian message, put together by the Canadian Dance Assembly and authored by Yvon Soglo, Crazy Smooth.
(The above is provided with a big nod to Victoria School of the Arts’ weekly newsletter, for pointing me in this direction.)
Happy Dance Day, everyone!
