International Dance Day - Get ready to swivel those hips!

The day was first established by UNESCO in 1982 and it is held every 29 April, as this is the birthdate of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet.

Do you love to dance?  I know I do!  We express ourselves through dancing, it's fun and one of the best forms of exercise!  So much so that you'll be having too much to fun to even realise you're working out at the same time!

It's also a great expression of our cultures - from ceilidh dancing in Scotland to bollywood dance in India.

We all have different tastes and there's got to be a type of dance to suit everyone.  International dancing encourages everyone who can take part to get moving!

In 2010, 300 people in Toronto performed a routine that has become a video sensation on youtube - it's been watched over 185,000 times so far!

In 2011 two seperate routines were performed; one by adults and one by children.  The opportunity to join up for some modern dance lessons is also always on offer and could be worth looking into!

So whether you fancy trying something new or heading out with some friends for the night, make sure you remember to celebrate!

And remember even if you think you're a bad dancer and the robot move is the best you've got - now's the time to flaunt it!  Make sure you keep checking the official International Dance Day website for more information about events in 2014.
