World Dance Day

Dancing is like dreaming with your feet! ~Constanze

I'm pooped... how about you?

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!!

However... it is WORLD DANCE DAY ON APRIL 29TH and who doesnt like a bit of a dance?

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 :)

For more serious days check out the UN Observance Days page. International Day of Families is coming up on May 15.. thats another one I want to celebrate.

Every little girl has to have at least one seriously swirly dancing dress. we used to have a box of stuff to dance with: a long fat ribbon, crepe paper streamer, some of Nannas old scarves or Poppys hankies and the odd balloon. It kept them happy for hours.
