Let's Dance . . .

Today is International Dance Day, about which Wikipedia notes the following.

International Dance Day is a global celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO. The event takes place every year on April 29, the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. The day strives to encourage participation and education in dance through events and festivals held on the date all over the world.

Following is an inspiring video put together by the YouTube channel People Are Awesome to celebrate International Dance Day 2018. Enjoy!
