On 23 March 2017, UNPA issued new stamps for its International Dance series, featuring six different dances from around the world.

Dance is both an art form and a method of communication in cultures around the world.  It has been called the universal language and according to UNESCO (the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization), dance promotes, in a lively manner, reciprocal knowledge and respect of diversity. 

The dance styles featured on the stamps portray Polynesian and Native American tribal dance (49¢ and $1.15);  Quadrille and Japanese Fan dance (CHF 1,00 and CHF 1,50);  and Samba and Ballet (€ 0,68 and € 0,80). 

The US-denominated stamps were designed by Pascal Campion (France). The CHF-denominated stamps are designed by Jean François Martin (France). The Euro-denominated stamps are designed by Victo Ngai (Hong Kong).
