In 1982 the Dance Committee of UNESCO's International Theatre Institute founded International Dance Day, to be celebrated every year on April 29, the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810) who is regarded as the creator of modern ballet. Its goal is to celebrate dance around the world, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross political, cultural and ethnic barriers and to bring people together with a common language - dance. www.international-dance-day.org
In 2012 the Canadian Dance Assembly launched the I love dance/J'aime la danse campaign which leads up to International Dance Day. www.cda-acd.ca
