Every year, the world celebrates International Dance Day, to bring everyone together in peace and friendship through a common language – dance. Each Dance Day is an opportunity to acknowledge the power of dance in our lives.
In this year’s celebration we are enjoined to take a step back and celebrate in “open spaces: streets, squares, parks, stadiums, beaches, parking lots, clearings – anywhere under the sky.” Throughout the year, “we teach dance, we rehearse, we perform within four walls.” But “on this special day dedicated to dance, [let us] we mark the difference by practising, teaching or performing for everyone to see. It might be cold and rainy, the floor is certainly not good enough, and the wind takes the music away, but the beauty in those movements and the joy on those faces will brighten the hearts of the spontaneous audience of passers-by.” (from the circular by International Dance Council, CID, UNESCO, Paris)
