2023 Dance Magazine Awards
December 4 @ 7:00 pm
The 2023 Dance Magazine Awards will honor Antoine Hunter, Alicia Graf Mack, Norton Owen, Bijayini Satpathy, and Maria Torres. The Chairman’s Award will be given to Jody Gottfried Arnold; the Harkness Promise Award recipients are Amadi “Baye” Washington and Sam “Asa” Pratt, of Baye & Asa, and Omar Román De Jesús; and posthumous Dance Magazine Awards will be given to Syvilla Fort, Gregory Hines, Pearl Primus, and Helen Tamiris. The awards honor the artistry, integrity, and resilience that dance artists have demonstrated over the course of their careers. They feature several changes for 2023, including the addition of an annual theme, the establishment of criteria for the selection committee, and the inclusion of posthumous honors to recognize some of the many artists active since 1954 who were not given awards during their lifetimes.
