Luanda - The Minister of Culture, Tourism and Environment, Jomo Fortunato, Thursday highlighted the need to promote reflection around the world of dance in Angola.

In a message on the occasion of the World Dance Day, Jomo Fortunato considers it a moment to rethink the value of Angolan traditional dances, in all its forms of expression, within a national and universal context, highlighting the values inherent to the cultural reality of Angola.

The Cabinet minister expressed the desire that the level of choreographic creativity honours even more the history of Angolan dance, which is intended to be structured on a genesis based on contemporaneity and cultural diversity.

According to the government official, it is also necessary to pay tribute to the cultural agents of the modality that made history, and stimulate the emerging of a contemporary dance of endogenous inspiration, alive, active and of universal projection.

The International Dance Day was instituted on April 29th 1982, by the International Dance Committee (CID) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), with the objective of celebrating the art and showing its universality, independently of political, cultural and ethical barriers.
