Thursday the 29th April is International Dance Day and dance enthusiasts all across the world are marking this day by opting for the virtual world. Dance – one of our oldest art forms known to mankind has evolved so much in our modern world but the essence throughout the journey has remained the same. Moving your body rhythmically on a beat or a music – that’s called dance. And we celebrate this globally each year on 29th April.
In April 2021 the Coronavirus, Covid-19 continues to affect lives and businesses around the globe, and is causing many event cancellations, so we at Firkin Crane, the Home of Dance in Cork, are asking you to join us in this celebration for 2021 by putting aside some time on Thursday 29th April to celebrate International Dance Day in your home, garden. Check out our Facebook page, play some dance music, and safely have fun, even if it is just a dance around your kitchen table, or in your bedroom!
International Dance Day is a global celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO.
The event takes place every year on 29 April, which is the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727–1810), the creator of modern ballet.
