International Dance Day IDD 2017 Celebrations at JMA Pilani Rajasthan

Invariably, every one dances to celebrate every other occasion and it does call for one occasion to celebrate dance itself by dancing. Dancing is much more about having the Right Moves and not about having the Right Shoes.

Pilani, Rajasthan, May 3, 2017 /India PRwire/ -- To quote Friedrich Nietzsche "Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" One of the major objectives of the International Theatre Institute - ITI which is an NGO in formal associate relationship with UNESCO is to promote international exchange of knowledge and practice in the domain of the performing arts. To quote the words of Martha Graham acknowledged as the Picasso of Dance, "Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion."

In 1982 the International Dance Committee - IDC of the ITI founded International Dance Day - IDD to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, the birth anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810) acknowledged as the creator of modern ballet. The main purpose of IDD is to celebrate Dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language known as Dance. One of the highlights of the celebrations every year is to circulate across the world a message from an outstanding choreographer or dancer. The personality is selected by the founding entity of the International Dance Day - the International Dance Committee of the ITI, which collaborates with World Dance Alliance, a Cooperating Member of the ITI.

For the year 2017 which is the 35th International Dance Day the message author is Trisha Brown US born dancer, choreographer and artistic director of the Trisha Brown Company who passed away on 18 Mar 2017. The message goes as "Dance communicates and expands the universal language of communication, giving birth to joy, beauty and the advancement of human knowledge. Dance is about creativity...again and again...in the thinking, in the making, in the doing, and in the performing."

Right from its inception, Smt Jamuna Mishra Academy - JMA which is one among the top ranking schools in Pilani has embarked on a rich tradition of celebrating various days of national and international significance.
