One Dance UK Awards 2018


One Dance UK 2018 Awards

2018 sees the exciting launch of the first One Dance UK Awards. Unlike any other awards, the One Dance UK awards is focussed uniquely on dance and has been developed to recognise the outstanding contributions of people working in the dance sector.

This annual event is an opportunity for people in the dance sector to get together, celebrate, acknowledge and reward the people who have made an impact over the last 12 months on the UK’s vibrant dance landscape.


The One Dance UK Awards launched in April 2018 and nominations are open until 31 July 2018. Once nominations have closed we will go through a process of shortlisting nominations with input from a panel of experts most relevant to the category. The panel will be formed from a wider pool of experts and specialists representing all areas of the dance sector today.

Shortlists for each category will be announced in September and at this point we will open a public vote for; Dance Personality of the Year, People’s Choice Award and Best Use of Dance by a Brand

Award Categories

We have chosen 23 Award Categories, which span all the vital work that is taking place to shape the dance sector today. Click here to find out more about the Award Categories for 2018.

One Dance UK Awards Evening

Shortlisted nominations for each category will be invited to join category sponsors and VIPs to attend a glamorous awards evening on Saturday 24th November. Timed to coincide with our 2018 Conference Season the awards evening promises to be an exciting celebration of achievement in the UK Dance Sector.


There will be opportunities for sponsors to get involved in this unique occasion and to demonstrate their commitment and support to dance. Very few opportunities exist for companies to make a tangible difference to the wider sector within which they operate. To find out more about sponsoring an award click here
