Dance UK Industry Award
Do you know of someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty to move dance forward and enable the dance art form to thrive? If so, Dance UK wants to hear about them!

The Dance UK Industry Award aims to highlight the many important but often unacknowledged contributions that make a real difference to how dance is created, supported and seen. Hosted by the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards, this special award will honour an individual working in dance who has made an outstanding contribution to the art form. They could be a dance manager, a designer, a critic – in fact anyone – who has made a significant contribution to dance beyond the scope of their usual role.
To nominate someone for this award, please send your nomination to:
Dance UK Industry Award, c/o Dance UK, Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, London SW11 5TN.
You need to include the name of the person you are nominating along with a statement telling us – in no more than 200 words – why you feel this person should win the award. You should also let us know where the person is based or where he or she can be contacted. Please note that due to the scope of this award, only nominations for individuals working within the dance industry can be accepted.

All nominations must be received by 30 November 2003.

Nominations will be considered by a panel who will decide upon the shortlist and the winner. The Award will be announced as part of the National Dance Awards at Sadler’s Wells, London, on 13 January 2004.
Dance UK are also supporting the National Dance Awards’ Audience Prize, in which audience members can vote for their favourite dancer. For more information, contact Sian Kendall on 020 7228 4990 or
