What are the Dance Track Artist Awards?
In an effort to shine a spotlight on the dance community and the great work being done, we’ve created the Dance Track ‘Artist Awards’ and categories which our staff would like to honor. The awards will showcase specific categories that we feel are under-recognized and need to be commended. Whether it is on stage, screen or in the classroom, Dance Track Foundation would like to thrust the recipients into the spotlight by announcing the winners in the Dance Track Magazine Spring issue. Make sure to read our Submission Rules for eligibility. Our Nominating Forms are available. Click HERE to see all of the award categories.
*Please note the cut off dates for nominating yourself or others for the 2011 Dance Track Artist Awards.
What is the prize?
The prize for the 2011 Dance Track Artist Awards will be our recognition at our annual award ceremony and the winners will appear in the Dance Track Magazine special digital issue for Spring.

What is Dance Track Foundation?
DANCE TRACK FOUNDATION is a non-profit organization created to honor and cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contributions of dancers and choreographers to American culture – from the artistic and street founders of the past to the still unimagined creators of the future of dance professionals. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the dance industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership with Dance Track Magazine to bring national attention to important issues such as value and impact of dance and arts education and the necessity of cultivating our diverse and ever emerging young artists and genres of dance.

*Dance Track Foundation has applied for tax-exempt status and is awaiting status update.
