International Dance Day

April 29 is International Dance Day commemorating the birth in 1727 of Jean-Georges Noverre, French dancer and balletmaster, generally considered the creator of ballet d’action, the precursor of the narrative ballets of the 19th century.  Sponsored by the International Theatre Institute, a Gala Celebration is held each year in a host city.

The 2017 Gala was in Shaghai, while the 2018 Gala is being held in Havana, Cuba.
