People of all ages and artistic capacities have made dances in parks, museums, street corners, schools, work places, community centers, offices, and just about anywhere you can imagine.
Participants have been professional dancers and artists, plumbers, doctors, soccer players, teachers and politicians.Some dances are choreographed, some are improvised, and some stretch the definition of what dance is.World Tutu Day began in 2014 as an initiative of The Australian Ballet School and has leapt to New Zealand this year.The idea is that funds raised in other countries will support top ballet schools all over the world and enable them to offer their programs to students who have talent but not the means to follow their dreams.February 2 (2/2) annually Arts Advocacy Day is an advocacy training opportunity hosted by Americans for the Arts and cosponsored by 85+ national arts organizations, National Arts Advocacy Day is the largest gathering of its kind, bringing together grassroots advocates from across the country in Washington DC to meet with members of Congress in support of issues like arts education policy, the charitable tax deduction, and funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.March 23-24, 2015 (dates for this event vary annually) is a simultaneous worldwide public art performance.
