On the 29th of April, as every year since 1982, World Dance Day will be celebrated all over the world by the international community of dancers and dance enthusiasts. The day is initiated and celebrated through promotion by the International Dance Council CID, UNESCO in Paris as well as the Dance Committee of the ITI (International Theater Institute).
The goals are to increase awareness of the importance of dance and attract the attention of the wider public, to the art of dance, as well as to persuade governments all over the world to provide a proper place for dance in all systems of education. Emphasis is also given to addressing a “new” public, people who do not follow dance events during the course of the year. The intention 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 – Dance.
PEARL (Penang Arts Link) is a network of independent individuals and groups of Penang dance makers in Penang, coming together to organize and celebrate International Dance Day in April each year. This year, it will be celebrated on Sunday, May 12.
Workshops will be held from 10.00 am - 5.30 pm. Participants will be invited to participate in different forms of dance training conducted by Dance teachers and choreographers from Let’s Dance, Zero Fitness Dance Center, Dance Factory Art Academy, I-Media Education, A&T Dance Academy, Yogeswara Yoga, Tian Lo Natural Healing Center, penangPAC, Adikarma, Temple of Fine Arts and dance personalities such as Aida Redza, Nancy Ng and more in technique such as contemporary dance, zumba, creative/expressive dance, hip hop, street dance, new dance and bollywood at Performing Arts Centre Penang
