Dance is the most intuitive and sensuous genre of art, making it possible for people all over the world to communicate with each another. Busan International Dance Festival has established itself as a performing arts festival through communication and sympathy. This year, celebrating its thirteenth successful occasion, a variety of global dance performances will unfold with the beautiful sea and sky in the background.
The dance festival, which will be held from Jun. 2 to Jun. 6 with the theme of "Falling in Love with Busan, through Dance!", will feature 56 works from 46 groups in 14 countries, including Korea. Especially, this year, the "Ballet Star Festival," a premiere performance by world-class ballet stars from Busan, is expected to stop people's steps with even more touching gestures. In addition, "Night of the World Folk Dance" that has been prepared for multicultural people living in Busan will offer a venue for genuine communication by sharing culture and emotions with one another.
I am confident that Busan International Dance Festival, an occasion for a contemporary dance and ballet as well as folklore and traditional dance of different countries, will get into part of people's life in this city.
Busan International Dance Festival has continued its efforts through AK21 for development and revitalization of dance arts in Busan. It has filled the distance among people with the language of gesture, producing a great resonance. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have worked hard for this event. Thanks to your efforts, we can feel the pulse of global dance and breathe with citizens. I sincerely ask for your warm support and encouragement to those giving off their unstoppable passion and perseverance on the stage.
