At the New Jersey stop on this year’s Dance Resource and Costume Show tour, the United Dance Merchants of America presented its annual Dedicated to Dance Awards, and Dance Teacher was among the recipients! Technically, it was Dance Teacher Now, the magazine’s original title, that got the award for helping found the annual costume show and participating all 20 years. DT publisher DanceMedia received an award, as well, and the company’s booth this year featured a poster of our first ever cover, from 1979!

Other Dedicated to Dance Award winners included West Park Productions as well as costume manufacturers A Wish Come True, Art Stone/the Competitor, Algy, Cicci Dance Supplies, Costume Gallery, Curtain Call Costumes, Lebo’s, M & I Dancewear, Weissman Designs for Dance and Wolff Fording & Company.
