International Dance Day was first introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the International Dance Committee (ITI).

The event is recognised around the world and is a celebration of all things dance. There are tonnes of different types of dance that have really transformed the world of entertainment. Here we take a look at some of the most popular and influential types of dance today. Ballet Many other styles of dance are formed around the basics of ballet.
