A weeklong programme to mark this year’s International Dance Day, organised by Bangladesh Nritya Shilpi Shangstha (BNSS), in association with Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA), will come to an end today on the premises of BSA at Segun Bagicha in the capital.

As a part of the celebration of International Dance Day that falls on April 29 (today), a daylong programme has been chalked out featuring seminar, rally, discussion, dance show and honouring veteran dance artists.

The organisers will bring out a colourful rally at 10am from the BSA premises. In the evening, veteran journalist and cultural personality Kamal Lohani will attend a discussion event and the dance day programme as chief guest.

Later on, an award ceremony followed by a cultural event will be held. This year, dancer and choreographer Selina Haque will be bestowed with the first Nritya Gurumata Rahijha Khanam Jhunu Memorial Award. Bangladesh Dance Artistes’ Association has introduced the award this year after the name of late eminent dance artiste Rahijha Khanam Jhunu who died in November last year.

Earlier on April 23, Ekushey Padak winning dance artiste Laila Hasan inaugurated the weeklong festival at the National Theatre Hall of the academy in the presence of artistes from different troupes. The festival featured a dance fair at the Fine Arts Plaza of BSA. Besides, dance programmes by the various dance troupes and schools took place every day from 6pm to 9pm until April 28.

To note, BNSS has been organising the festival since 2002.
