The Bessies and arts organizations assert core values

THE NY DANCE AND PERFORMANCE AWARDS, THE BESSIES JOIN OUR COLLEAGUES IN RECOMMITTING TO OUR CORE VALUES IN THIS TIME OF CHANGE IN NATIONAL LEADERSHIP

New York, NY
January 19, 2017

As the country enters a time of change in national leadership, the following dance and performing arts organizations have marked the occasion by posting, or reposting, statements expressing their core values. The New York Dance and Performance Awards, The Bessies has gathered the links to the statements in one document; the words they contain are written entirely independently by the organizations themselves. The Bessies salute and celebrate the values expressed by these cultural organizations, and remain committed to serving a wide diversity of dance and performing artists.

May we never lose sight of who we are and what we value. May we, as American art institutions continue to be beacons of the precious freedom of expression enshrined in the First Amendment of The US Constitution.

About the Bessies:
The NY Dance and Performance Awards have saluted outstanding and groundbreaking creative work in the dance field in New York City for 31 years. Known as “The Bessies” in honor of revered dance teacher Bessie Schönberg, the awards were established in 1984 by David R. White at Dance Theater Workshop. They recognize outstanding work in choreography, performance, music composition, and visual design. Nominees are chosen by a 40-member selection committee comprised of artists, presenters, producers, and writers. All those working in the dance field are invited to join the NY Dance and Performance League, as members participate in annual discussions on the direction of the awards and nominate members to serve on the selection committee. www.bessies.org
