The awards celebrate dance and choreographic excellence—past, present, and future. Nominators consider outstanding choreography, featured dancers, and ensembles in shows on and Off-Broadway as well as outstanding choreography in film; eligible works opened pre-COVID and during the 2021-2022 season. Through education and scholarships, the awards are also committed to nurturing future generations and preserving notable dance history.
The awards will benefit The NYC Dance Alliance Foundation College Scholarship Program. Since the inception of the foundation, $4 million has been awarded to over 400 dancers represented in 42 college dance programs in the country.
