UNESCO has a habit of reserving 24 hours for everything in the field of performing arts, so it’s perhaps no surprise that there’s an annual International Dance Day.

It has been earmarked as a celebration for anyone who attaches “value and importance” to dance, and “acts as a wake-up call for governments, politicians and institutions which have not yet recognised its value”.


The French Embassy in Nigeria and the Institute of Français Du Nigéria are bringing the  International Dance Day {IDD} celebration to Nigeria for the first time.

IDD is celebrated every April 29 and this date coincides with the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre, the Frenchman generally recognised as the creator of modern ballet.

IDD celebrates the universality and diversity of dance as an art form and as part of the first edition of the celebration in Nigeria
