29 April has been officially celebrated as World Dance Day since 1982. The date coincides with the birthday of world-famous French ballet dancer Jean-Georges Noverre.

Although there is nothing surprising about the fact that dance has a world day, when people celebrate the most exciting form of bodily expression with various colorful programs world wide, dance as an art form has been neglected, and to this day it lacks the support and attention it deserves. This is exactly what is voiced on 29 April. The history of dance has progressed hand in hand with the history of human culture. Even in the New Stone Age in China, images of humans dancing together were painted on porcelain surfaces, and on the walls of the rock shelters in Bhimbetka, India, the first dancing figures were drafted about nine thousand years ago. In the age of Antiquity, Egyptians also liked to remember dance as an essential element of life.

Early trances or dance, however, didn’t only remain in paintings and drawings. The Bible and the Talmud contain over thirty expressions related to dance. We know of Chinese classic text called Lushi Chunqiu from 239 AD which described certain dance forms - these at the time were parts of mystical or religious rituals. In time, however, dance began to lose its religious or mystical content, and became an integral part of art, then of entertainment. An ancient Indian treatise. Natyashastra tackled the importance of dance in dramas. Of course, visual arts never gave up on dance as a subject matter - in more recent times, for instance, dance was beautifully depicted in DeGaulle’s paintings.

From the various ages of history emerged not only new wears and music, but more and more new dance styles too. Dance became a part of history itself, and it also owns a precious historical heritage. Dance has preserved its outstanding artistic importance to this day, and at the same time, it has become the cultural heritage of most countries. a perfect example for this Hungarian folk dance, which is closely liked to Hungarian folk music and traditional costumes.
