Performing artistes and dance lovers will celebrate the World Dance Day on Sunday across the globe including India with the aim of highlighting the expressive art form.
Practitioners of this art form celebrate the day individually as well as in groups to recognize the joy of movement and unique art of dancing.
The day was introduced in 1982 by the UNESCO International Dance Committee with the aim of bringing all dancers together to celebrate the art form and revel in its universality, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together in peace and friendship with a common language of Dance.
‘Dance is a unique expression of joy with a historical significance in our festivities and ceremonies. It is considered as an important segment in our theatrical programmes, cultural shows and performing art events.”
