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.
The winners will be honored at an awards ceremony to be held in the spring of 2020. This event will be free and open to the public. The following is a list of Nominees and Honorees by awards category.
Thank you to the Izzies Committee for all they do to support Bay Area dance! What a joy to create work in this community. Congratulations to all the nominees!
With love, awe, and gratitude,
Sarah Bush, Artistic Director
