One year since the creation of AWA DANCE (Advancing Women’s Aspirations with Dance), an online ceremony was held to celebrate a woman for being an outstanding leader in the UK dance sector in 2020, someone whose actions have made an impact beyond herself. The award recipient could be a choreographer, dancer, producer, technician, administrator, artistic director, etc, someone that has made an exceptional contribution to the dance sector this 2020 for her leadership practice.
Massive congratulations to Vicky Igbokwe, Director of Uchenna Dance for winning the AWA DANCE #WomeninDanceAward, very well deserved. A fabulous evening celebrating the accomplishment of women leaders in dance, recognising and celebrating the work they do and the courageous leaders that they are. 28 nominees, 6 shortlisted and one fabulous winner. Thank you for letting us share this special occasion with you all!
