Celebrate the International Dance Day in the Laterna magika - New Stage 

Painting and dancing have the advantage over other arts that they are common to all countries and all peoples; their language is understood by all and makes the same impression everywhere.
(Jean-Georges Noverre)

Leading soloists of the national and regional ballets, and representatives of independent professional companies will dance during the evening. They will present short choreographies emphasising technical and artistic virtuosity. The original programme will consist of variations and choreographies from the classical and modern repertoire.

In 1982, the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Dance Committee first proclaimed 29 April as International Dance Day on the occasion of the birth of the French dance reformer Jean-Georges Noverre (1727–1810). From that moment on, this globally recognised holiday (registered under UNESCO) spread to all countries of the world, symbolically linking different nations and their cultures through the universal language of dance. Each year, a dance personality is also asked to give a message on this day and their message then travels across the planet.

In addition to the traditional events held in the Czech Republic, culminating in a gathering of performers and spectators of many dance styles on Střelecký ostrov, this year for the first time there will also be a special gala performance at the New Stage, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April 2024.

Art 4 People, in collaboration with the Czech National Ballet and other artistic partners, will offer audiences two original performances by the best companies from the Czech Republic.
