29 April: International Dance Day

International Dance Day is the day when we celebrate dance and movement as art, as well as everyday life.

In 1982. UNESCo started the initiative to declare April 29th the International dance day, as a reminder of the universality of dance which overrides all national, political and cultural barriers. This date is the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), one of the most significant dance reformers, also considered the founder of modern ballet.
Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance was among the first in the world to embrace UNESCO's initiative.
Today, it is the day when Zagreb Dance Centre opens its doors and offers a rich choice of various free dance activities.

We're inviting everyone to join us in the celebration which includes various dance workshops and a rich programme that will present the diversity of dance forms.
