Danse Danse Awards

Ethel Bruneau Award by Les prix de la danse de Montréal

The Prix Ethel Bruneau recognizes dance artists who have had a profound impact on history. The award created in 2020 is dedicated to highlighting, year after year, dance artists and artisans whose contribution is little known. Its purpose is to present an accurate and current narrative of the world of dance. Together, the MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels) and DANSE DANSE are joining forces to sponsor the award, which comes with a 5 000 $ grant.
