Just Dance

International Dance Day – April 29

International Dance Day is celebrated every April 29 with events across Canada and around the world. The date commemorates the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, regarded as the founder of modern ballet.

I can’t seem to find a young family friendly dance event on Sunday - International Dance Day - that shouldn’t stop you from having a big dance party with your kids at home. 


Additional Event Scoop?

It is our anniversary on April 27th and we are coming to Edmonton that day. Does anyone know of what is going on in the city that evening that we could maybe get tickets for. Thanks for your help.
