The 2021 Dance Magazine Awards are here! A tradition dating back to 1954, the Dance Magazine Awards have long celebrated living legends who've made a lasting impact on dance. These days, we go even further with our recently added Chairman's Award for distinctive leaders behind the scenes, and Harkness Promise Awards, a grant for innovative young choreographers.

As the performing arts emerge from the challenges of the pandemic, the Dance Magazine Awards celebrate those whose outstanding contributions have made our field even stronger. With the selection committee's continued focus on diversity, we honor the artistry, the integrity and the resiliency these artists have demonstrated over the course of their careers. Join us to celebrate this outstanding group at Works & Process at the Guggenheim* on Monday, December 6, with performances and presentations for each honoree.

*All in-person ceremony plans are subject to change based on state and local guidelines. All live attendees are required to show proof of vaccination.

Dance Media Foundation Inc, a not-for-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York, was formed to promote the art of dance. The Organization’s principal goal is to make grants to other tax-exempt organizations that support up-and-coming dancers, choreographers, designers, musicians and other artistic individuals, for purposes intended to advance the art of dance, including dance education.
