The DSA awards contribute not only to the visibility of the individuals and works honored, but also to the visibility of dance research and to our continuing drive for excellence in dance scholarship.

DSA relies on its members to nominate candidates for the Research and Leadership Awards, while the book and publication awards, and graduate student awards can be self-submitted. Please see nomination details under each award.
