Celebrate International Dance Day

International Dance Day was introduced in 1982 by UNESCO and is celebrated on April 29 every year. These celebrations are to recognize the contributions of dance/dancers to our societies, to raise the status of the form within official establishments and to bring people together with the universal language of dance.

Read & watch the CDA's 2015 International Dance Day message from Luca 'Lazylegz' Patuelli.

We are supplying snacks for high school students participating in The Dance Centre's Bollywood Youth Bash April 29 at the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza on Georgia St at 12:30pm. Here's a full list of IDD events happening at The Dance Centre.
