INSPIRES! Awards 2015

The INSPIRES! Awards is an initiative created by Dance London out of a want to recognise the individuals and organisations that go above and beyond what is expected to inspire the dance industry. Be it a teacher who consistently supports their students or an organisation and their work in dance and medicine. The mission of these awards is to bring the community together and collectively show support and recognition for all that is good out there.

On the 14th February 2015 we launched the INSPIRES! Awards on stage at MOVE IT. The Awards process began by opening the online nomination process. This process enabled the dance community to nominate individuals and organisations for the five categories of awards with an explanation of why they deserved to be put forward.The online vote closed at the end of June, at which point each nominee had to accept their nomination and fill out an acceptance form, which asked for more information about their work. The nominees were presented on the Dance London website throughout the run up to the Awards Gala on the 24th November.
