Dansens Dager 2019
International Dance Day
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 29th April, the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. The day strives to encourage participation and education in dance through events and festivals held on the date all over the world. UNESCO formally recognize ITI to be the creators and organizers of the event.
This year the event was celebrated in Bergen on 27th April and was coordinated by the Bergen Dance Centre. Several dance groups and organisations performed at three places in the city.
