International Dance Day was founded in 1982 by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute and is celebrated worldwide every year on April 29. The goal of International Dance Day is to celebrate dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language—dance. While International Dance Day is celebrated across the world on April 29, Ballet Austin will be celebrating world dance on Sunday, April 30, 2017.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate International Dance Day. A variety of classes all afternoon; fun dances from countries and cultures around the world including:
Afro-Brazilian | American Jazz | Ballet | Bollywood | Bollywood Folk | Brazilian Samba | German Folk Dance | Hawaiian Dance | Hip Hop | Spanish Flamenco | Zumba Latin Dance Fitness
