‘Today we celebrate an important day for the dance community because World Dance Day promotes all dance forms, it creates awareness of its values and most importantly, it brings to attention to all Governments and leaders and getting their support to allow the dance community to promote their artwork.
Dance is a universal language, great art, and gift, that enables everyone to express it in their own way, but the message is always visible and accessible. Let us celebrate this most important and beautiful profession. Happy International Day of Dance!’
