MARTHA HILL DANCE FUND GALA 2016
The mission of The Martha Hill Dance Fund – now in its 16th year - is to honor and perpetuate the legacy of Martha Hill’s commitment to dance education and dance performance both domestically and internationally by (A) awarding the annual Martha Hill Lifetime Achievement Award to one or more recipients who have demonstrated the qualities for which Martha Hill was most revered both as an educator and as a creative force, (B) awarding the annual Mid Career Award and Young Professional Award (in conjunction with established dance education organizations) and (C) supporting the preservation of archives, producing a LEGACY SERIES for schools worldwide and publishing an annual newsletter. One of the first long-term goals of the fund was to make a DOCUMENTARY FILM about Martha Hill. This was proudly achieved this past year with the release of MISS HILL, MAKING DANCE MATTER directed by Greg Vander Veer.
2016 MARTHA HILL DANCE FUND GALA
On NOVEMBER 21, 2016 the fund will host our annual AWARDS GALA honoring Ann Hutchinson Guest and Deborah Jowitt as the Lifetime Achievement recipients, Fredrick Earl Mosley as the Mid-Career recipient and a student as the Young Professional awardee. The fund will also recognize Reed Hansen with a special citation for his many years as a dance accompanist.
