The 32nd Annual Bessie Awards

Presented in association with BAM

Come to “the dance world's version of the Academy Awards” (The New York Times) to salute work performed in the 2015-16 season. Legendary dance and performing artists are on hand to present awards for choreography, performance, music composition, and visual design. There will be live dance performances by Bessie Award-recognized artists, and video of all the nominated work. Everyone is welcome to the largest annual gathering of the city's dance makers and dance lovers.

The Bessies, named for the revered dance teacher and choreographer Bessie Schonberg, are “the city's highest dance honors” (Time Out), recognizing outstanding dance and performance work since 1984. The awards are chosen by a panel of 40 artists, presenters, curators, and writers, and produced in partnership with Dance/NYC. For a list of the 2016 nominees visit www.bessies.org.

This event is presented by The Bessies. BAM house, ticketing, and membership policies may not apply.
