International Dance Day is Coming in April

April 29, International Dance Day

Next month it's Dance Day! Here's the announcement from UNESCO.

This day was created in 1982 by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI). Every year, a public figure is chosen to write a message that is disseminated worldwide.

The 2010 ceremony at UNESCO will include several dance sequences in the presence of the author of the international message, renowned Argentinian dancer Julio Bocca.

The Atlanta Dance Company writes on its website:
So is anyone doing anything international or crossing cultural boundaries they'd like to share? CORE's going to Guatemala in May and the ABUNDANCE festival in Sweden in June. Or is anyone working with folks here who are from other countries? Good Moves is teaching dance to some refugee girls from an international school in Decatur.

And how are you going to celebrate Dance Day in general? What should DanceATL do??
