The Bessies have honored and supported the diversity inherent in our brilliant dance landscape since foundation in 1984. In these troubling times, we wanted to take a moment to affirm our commitment to all members of the vast and varied dance-making community. We celebrate the differences of all individuals, each part of a vibrantly rich global family. Thank you for being a part of this community, for your art, and for all you do to take care of one another. Let us know how we can help in your efforts to unite, empower, protect, and create change.
