If you’re like us, dance is a part of your every day life, meaning you don’t need an excuse to get moving and shaking. But, who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate? April 29th is International Dance Day and to honor the day (and how awesome you are), we want to give you a chance to win some great prizes!
But first, did you know that International Dance Day was started in 1982 by the International Theatre Institute as a way to place value and importance on dance as an art form and to encourage governments and institutions to support and encourage dance? April 29th was chosen as the date as it was the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, the creator of modern ballet.
Now that you know a bit about the history of this beautiful celebration, let’s get to the contest. The rules are simple.
