As International Dance Day approaches on the 29th of April, ŻfinMalta is inviting the general public to put on their dancing shoes and join in a shared (albeit distant) celebration of this unique art form.

Malta’s national dance company has quickly adapted to the current situation, and through its innovative online campaign, Dance is Us, has managed to not only keep the dance community engaged, but also attracted a new audience to the world of dance. Suffice to say that last Sunday’s free Zoom ballet class, a first for Malta, was a huge success, with over 100 attendees from all walks of life.

Over and above more free classes over the coming days, ŻfinMalta will be celebrating International Dance Day by organising an online dance, and is inviting you to join in.

“Anyone who is passionate about dance, no matter what age or ability, is welcome to join us,” stated ŻfinMalta’s artistic director, Paolo Mangiola.

“Together with our dancers, we can all perform and enhance our emotional experiences through the power of dance. Just follow the list of instructions we’ll be sending, listen to the music, but most of all, enjoy the connection with the dance, your body, and the community.”

Participation is easy – simply send an email titled ‘International Dance Day’ to info@zfinmalta.org and you will receive all the necessary information.
