The 2021 RVA Dance Awards Show is an annual awards ceremony and performance production created in an effort to recognize the many talented performing artists and contributors amongst the growing dance community in Richmond, Virginia.
Due to the abrupt entrance of COVID-19, we will be adjusting the number of recipients this year, since all of our performances and creativity were unexpectedly abbreviated. An RVA Dance Award will be presented to 17 artistic professionals across all dance genres including but not limited to:
Best Dance Company
Dancer of the Year
Choreographer of the Year
Dance Instructor of the Year
Dance Studio of the Year
... and so many more!
Recipients of each award will be selected by our esteemed RVA Dance Awards Nomination Committee -- a small group of distinguished colleagues and dance professionals that are committed to making the performing arts, particularly dance, a priority in the city of Richmond, VA. Comprised of professionals within the University of Richmond Arts Department, Dogtown Dance Theatre and Studio 4 Dance Agency, our diverse selection of members will be united in their mission to acknowledge and support Richmond's performing artists by celebrating and recognizing their accomplishments.
Join our audience and be present to support our nominees. We seek to unite people through their shared love for high quality, entertaining performances. Ticket sales will begin October 18th, 2021.
