ONLINE LIVE CEREMONY WOMEN IN DANCE AWARD 2020 The first of its kind, the AWA DANCE Women in Dance Award seeks to celebrate women in the UK dance sector.
To celebrate one year since the creation of AWA DANCE (Advancing Women's Aspirations with Dance), we organised a live online award ceremony to celebrate a woman for being an outstanding leader in the UK dance sector in 2020, someone whose actions have made an impact beyond herself. The award recipient could be a choreographer, dancer, producer, technician, administrator, artistic director, etc, someone that has made an exceptional contribution to the dance sector this 2020 for her leadership practice. The award itself was specially designed by the visual artist Silvia Lerin, creating a work of art inspired by the charity’s leadership values.
