International Dance Day 2017 - Come dance around the world!
Experience Dance From Around The World on April 30! Ballet Austin celebrates dance that is deeply rooted in culture, and promotes the opportunity for the people of Austin to celebrate diversity through traditional dances from around the world. Come dance with us on April 30! Dance is a common language that unites us all on some level, and as we explore cultural dances, we discover a commonality between many cultures. The value of dance as a crucial form of cultural expression has been evident for centuries. We believe that dance reinforces the idea that there is an essence of unity in all human beings, despite our cultural differences or diversities. International Dance Day was founded in 1982 by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute and is celebrated worldwide every year on April 29. The goal of International Dance Day is to celebrate dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language—dance. While International Dance Day is celebrated across the world on April 29, Ballet Austin will be celebrating world dance on Sunday, April 30, 2017. We hope you will join us as we celebrate International Dance Day.
