The New York Dance and Performance Awards or “Bessie Awards” (in honor of dancer and teacher Bessie Schonberg) acknowledge outstanding creative work by independent artists in the fields of dance and related performance in New York City.
After a two year wait the Bessies were back this October, now produced under the umbrella of DanceNYC. The Bessies were held at Symphony Space on Oct 18th and attended by the who’s who of dance in NYC.
