International Dance Day 2024

On International Dance Day, we pay homage to the exquisite artistry of dance worldwide, a tribute conceived by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), a key partner of UNESCO in the performing arts realm.

This annual celebration commemorates the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727–1810), a revered French dancer and ballet master often hailed as the pioneer of modern ballet. It illuminates the evolution of classical and romantic ballet, shaping its contemporary expressions.

Since its creation in 1982, the International Dance Committee and the International Theatre Institute have annually selected a distinguished dance figure to write a message for International Dance Day.

DellaLo' & International Dance Day

For our dancewear company, International Dance Day has a special meaning, as we deeply share its values. We strive every day to pay homage to the world of dance in our own way, creating products that make the wearer, from professional dancers to enthusiasts, feel their best.
Our focus is on offering maximum freedom of movement and performance, ensuring that every dancer can express the best version of themselves.
Through our dedication to quality and comfort, we aim to contribute positively to the ballet community, celebrating the joy and expression that dance brings to people's lives.

This year, we want to celebrate the International Dance Day by attending the "DREAMS" show organized by Centro Aida. By purchasing tickets to the performance, we're supporting one of the Compassion Italia association's projects. This initiative aids over 2 million children living in extreme poverty, guiding them through life's journey.
