The 57th Annual Dance Magazine Awards will honor six exceptional artists for their contributions to the dance world. They represent a broad span of excellence: the ABT soloist MISTY COPELAND, presented by Raven Wilkinson; beloved jazz teacher LUIGI, presented by Liza Minnelli; co-founders of American Tap Dance Foundation BRENDA BUFALINO and TONY WAAG, presented by Constance Valis Hill; maverick British choreographer WAYNE McGREGOR, accepting via video from Jedediah Wheeler; and the force behind Youth America Grand Prix LARISSA SAVELIEV, presented by Susan Jaffe. The celebration will include performances by Ms. Copeland, a new duet choreographed by Marcelo Gomes, and an excerpt from McGregor's "Chroma," danced by members of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
