International Choreographers Day
Dance has been an integral part of culture and human life for many millennia, from jazz to tap to swing to folk to modern. The choreographers are a special group of people who have the ability to create dances.
People have likely been moving to rhythms for as long as music has existed. Archaeologists found evidence of dancing as early as 7000 BC. It is possible that dancing can be traced back even further. Human beings have always had an instinctive desire to move in new ways over time.
Choreographers have been choreographing, planning, and teaching dances for centuries. Since the term “choreographer”, the planned dances and routines of choreographers have been a part of musical theatre, film, television, and other performance events for many decades.
The Tony Awards have given choreographers recognition for their excellence on Broadway for over 70 years. Choreographers also receive the Primetime Emmy Award in Outstanding Choreography and MTV Video Music Award in Best Choreography.
International Choreographers Day is a day for everyone to pay tribute to those who have been creating dances for many years.

You can also go back to the seventies with the John Travolta dance sequence to More than a Woman by the Bee Gees in Saturday Night Fever.
