Oh what a night…!
The second acclaimed One Dance UK Awards ceremony took place in Manchester on Saturday night, saluting the outstanding contribution of people working in dance across the UK.
One Dance UK hosted the annual event against the dramatic backdrop of the Imperial War Museum North as an opportunity for people in the industry to unite, celebrate, acknowledge and recognise the people who have made an impact on the vibrant UK dance landscape. A panel of expert judges, drawn from the dance sector reviewed thousands of nominations to arrive at a shortlist of nominees for each category.
Hosted by Jonzi D, the Awards went to a wide range of individuals, organisations, and companies, listed below.
