The 2019 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.

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.
