In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be commemorated every year on the 29th April, Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern-day ballet. The International Dance Day Message intends to celebrate dance, enjoy the universality of this art kind, cross all political, cultural, and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a typical language - dance.

Every year a message from an impressive choreographer or dancer is circulated throughout the world. The author of the message is chosen by the International Dance Committee of ITI and the Executive Council of ITI. The message is translated into many languages and spread globally.
