National Dance Awards
Date:15 February 2013
During the 13th National Dance Awards ceremony on 28th January 2013 at The Place in London, the ‘Stef Stefanou Award for Outstanding Company’ went to Royal Ballet Flanders. The prize was accepted by two principal dancers of the company, Aki Saito and Wim Vanlessen, who had appeared in William Forsythe’s Artifact at Sadler’s Wells last summer.
Considered by many as one of the most comprehensive lists of dance achievements, the awards are decided by the 60 members of the Dance Section of the Critics’ Circle after an extensive round of nominations and voting. This year’s awards celebrated a broad spread of dance performances in Britain, from hip hop to narrative ballet.
