UNESCO's International Dance Day celebrated in Iowa City

Once again, InterDance brings International Dance Day celebration to Iowa City!
The holiday was introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute. The date was suggested by Pyotr Gusev to commemorate the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre.
Among the goals of the Dance Day are to increase the awareness of the importance of dance among the general public, as well as to persuade governments all over the world to provide a proper place for dance in all systems of education, from primary to higher.
Coordinated by InterDance with the support of Summer of the Arts, area dancers met at the Iowa City Ped Mall to join in the world-wide celebration of dance. The event concluded with Pyrotechnics in an amazing display of color, movement and the excitement of dancing with fire.
