The Dachverband Tanz Deutschland calls on dance associations and institutions as well as all dance professionals to submit proposals for the German Dance Award 2024.

The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2024.

The German Dance Award honors outstanding personalities of dance in Germany and recognizes current positions in dance. The focus is on the artistic work of choreographers, dancers, ensembles or collectives. Nevertheless, personalities from the fields of dance education, journalism, science or other areas of dance creation can also be nominated. In addition, the German Dance Association awards two honours: optionally an honour for lifetime achievement, an honour for outstanding performer/outstanding ensemble/collective or an honour for outstanding development in dance.

Proposals for the German Dance Award 2024

Proposals for the selection of the award winners can be submitted by representatives of dance associations and institutions as well as by all dance professionals. As associations, both nationwide and regional associations of all areas of dance creation in Germany are eligible to submit proposals. Companies, artist collectives, production houses, schools, archives and comparable permanent dance institutions are considered institutions. Individuals from the dance sector can also submit a proposal.
