This annual event is an opportunity for people in the dance sector to get together, celebrate, acknowledge and reward the people who have made an impact on the UK’s vibrant dance landscape. There was 23 Award Categories, which span all the vital work that is taking place to shape the dance sector today. DAZL was lucky enough to be nominated and shortlisted for two awards.
