International Dance Day Will Be Celebrated With a Virtual Flash Mob
International Dance Day (IDD), ignited by UNESCO Dance Council for the preservation of dance, IDD is celebrated annually on 29 April. Due to the closure of public venues and the impacts of COVID19, the celebration has been adapted by creating a Virtual Flash MOB routine! This will enable South Australia (and the world) to be engaged in learning the routine safely from their own home whilst joining the global celebration of Dance in 2020!
There are 2 components to the day.
Learn the Virtual Flash Mob from the online lessons.
A social media campaign to spread the love of dance.
"We would love to see people dancing at this time, by involving them in celebrating IDD in 2020. We want to inspire them to engage with dance, learn the Virtual Flash Mob dance routine and show us there moves."
This project has been sponsored by Premier and Cabinet, City of West Torrens, City of Marion Council, City of Adelaide, and City of Charles Sturt Place Makers Grant.
