The Isadora Duncan Dance Awards, known locally as the Izzies, are awarded annually to acknowledge creative achievements in the performance and presentation of dance. This year the Isadora Duncan Dance Awards Committee will celebrate 34 years of honoring local dance artists.
Awards are given in nine categories to honor the dancers, choreographers, designers, composers, dance companies, dance scholars and individuals who have made important contributions to the San Francisco Bay Area’s thriving dance community.
