    the universality of this art form,
    to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers
    to bring people together with a common language - Dance.

    For the year 2014 - the 32nd International Dance Day,
    the message from -  French choreographer and dancer Mourad Merzouki.
    is -
    “I have, for dance, not only the pride of a dancer and choreographer, but profound gratitude.
    Dance gave me my lucky break.
    It has become my ethics by virtue of its discipline and provided the means through which I discover the world daily.”
