Check out our amazing Middle School teacher, Mrs. Barron and her Middle School Dance Students celebrating International Dance Day!
Come on WPS! Let’s all find a minute and dance to your own rhythm today! Dance is the joy of movement and the heart of life!
In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate dance, revel in the universality of this art form, cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a common language – dance.
Every year a message from an outstanding choreographer or dancer is circulated throughout the world. The author of the message is selected by the International Dance Committee of ITI and the Executive Council of ITI. The message is translated into numerous languages and circulated globally.
