International Dance Day Message 2018

Initiated in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute, International Dance Day falls on April 29 of every year. Since 2005, the Canadian Dance Assembly has issued a Canadian message in conjunction with the UNESCO message. This year, CDA invited Vivine Scarlett of dance Immersion to share her inspirational message to all Canadians.

“The universal movement of dance releases the very essence of what is all around us. It connects and weaves so deep that one can feel the wisdom, patience and graciousness of its flow. With each move made there is a giving and receiving communication in that universal experience. Dance is a vehicle that lends itself to learning about oneself. It helps us move through life's experiences by expressing our stories and our history, by commenting on our present and nurturing our future.

Dance for you.

Dance for us.

Just dance and let the rhythm of our spirits soar in the movement of DANCE.”
