The New York Dance and Performance Awards, aka the Bessies, have saluted outstanding dance work since 1984. They were founded by David White and named for the treasured teacher of dance and composition, Bessie Schonberg.

Dance/NYC‘s mission is to bolster the support structure for dance in the New York City metropolitan area, serving as a voice and guide for dance artists and managers. Dance/NYC works in alliance with Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, to achieve this mission and execute on core program areas.

The Bessies are co-sponsored by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Trust, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and Harkness Foundation for Dance. We thank them for their support and for all they do for dance.
