With dance themed goodies at the ready, we decided to run our exciting dance inspired drawing competition to coincide with International Dance Day (World Dance Day). But what is World Dance Day we hear you ask?
In 1982 the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet.
The intention of the International Dance Day Message 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. Read more about it here.
We love this concept so we’ve set up our own dance-inspired drawing competition for children aged 3-8 years – the dancers of the future. We’d love it if you’d celebrate with us by entering our competition. We’ve had some lovely entries so far. Here are our two most recent drawings, photographed and sent in by parents:
What talented children you all have, and if any parents fancy sending in their drawings too, we’re happy to share them, just for fun 🙂
Find out more about the competition on our blog here or enter via Facebook here.
Happy drawing (and dancing) from The Twinklesteps Team. Don’t forget to follow our blog to keep up to date with our news, competitions and ballet themed play ideas.
