I have neglected to visit the International Observance days website for a few months!! And I missed out on World Sleep Day in March.. I REALLY wanted to participate in that one!! And world Nosepicking day just passed... dang!!

Find International Observance Days Here
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.
While dance has been an integral part of human culture throughout its history, it is underprioritized by official establishments in the world. In particular, Prof. Alkis Raftis, President of the International Dance Council, in his 2003 Dance Day Message said: "In more than half of the 200 countries in the world, dance does not appear in legal texts (for better or for worse!). There are no funds allocated in the state budget to support this art form. There is no such thing as dance education, private or public."
Get your dancing shoes on people :)
