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 7713 0730 or
