A note from Dance Magazine Editor Jennifer Stahl:

“The Dance Magazine Awards are an annual tradition dating back to 1954. This year, following several conversations about racial injustice that were inspired by the Black Lives Matter protests, the selection committee took a deep look at the bias in the choices for the Dance Magazine Awards. Over the past seven decades, the list of honorees has been overwhelmingly white. So this year, to reckon with and start to make a step toward repairing that history, they chose an outstanding group of all Black honorees. Of course, this in no way makes up for previous exclusions. However, it reflects Dance Magazine’s commitment to deliberate inclusion going forward.”
