The IDTA is delighted to announce the names of the shortlisted nominees for the 2009 Carl Alan Awards. The Association would like to extend its thanks to all the Selection Committees for their work and to the independent chairmen, John Leach and Shirley Thompson-Bradley.
The International Dance Teachers’ Association is proud to present the Carl Alan Awards 2009 on Sunday 1st February, in conjunction with the IDTA President’s Dinner and Dance. The IDTA are pleased that all three sections of the awards will be presented: Freestyle, Theatre and Ballroom, Latin & Sequence.
There are five categories of awards in each section: Performer’s Award, Teacher’s Award, Competitive Coach/Choreography Award, Outstanding Services to Dance Award and Lifetime Achievement Award.
All recognised dance associations or societies were invited to make nominations in all categories and each association or society was invited to send a delegate to represent them on each of the selection committees. The IDTA remained independent in the selection process.
From the many nominations received, the selection committees were asked to short-list up to three nominees in each category. To be nominated for a Carl Alan Award by your peers reflects the nominee’s considerable contribution to the world of dance. IDTA would like to congratulate all the nominees; unfortunately there can only be one winner in each category.
Please see the full list of categories and nominations below.
