LAU Launches the 10th edition of IDDFL, Virtually

Given the state of panic and fear that the coronavirus pandemic has induced around the world and
committed to its motto to #ReinventCommunication, the Department of Communication Arts at
the Lebanese American University launches the 10th edition of the International Dance Day
Festival in Lebanon (IDDFL) virtually on March 29. The festival is organized and implemented
by Dr. Nadra Assaf.

“2020 is the 10th anniversary of IDDFL and we did not want the year to go by without doing
something to commemorate it. Being in seclusion does not mean humanity cannot function,” Assaf
said. “We decided to do something a bit unique to help connect our dance community with the
intended guests for 2020, thus we created the ONLINE version.”

Every day, from March 29 to April 3, IDDFL will hold a dance class between 6-8 pm on its
social media platforms (Facebook: International Dance Day Festival in Lebanon, Instagram:

On the final day, participating dancers will host a collective online performance titled “Dancing
Together Online: Performing in the Era of COVID-19.”

The vision of IDDFL is to serve the needs of dance, dancers, choreographers, and professionals in
dance-related fields.

The IDDFL is part of UNESCO’s chosen International Dance Day yearly celebration, which
occurs on April 29.
