PICTURE YOURSELF IN THIS PHOTO. (Here, our 2016 award winners and the DT staff.)

If you're a dance teacher, studio owner, professional dancer or just someone who can bring the funk at a party thanks to your adolescent dance studies, you've definitely encountered a teacher who had a sizable impact on your life. Now's the time to share that teacher's skill and passion with the rest of the dance community! Nominate your favorite teacher for a 2017 Dance Teacher Award. It's very simple: Just fill out this online form. (Alternatively, you can email nominations to rrizzuto@dancemedia.com or send them via snail mail to this address: 2017 Dance Teacher Awards, Attn: Rachel Rizzuto, Dance Teacher magazine, 333 Seventh Ave., 11th Floor, New York, NY, 10001.)

In the past, we've honored a studio owner with an admirably no-nonsense attitude and competition teams that function more like families; a former Rockette-turned-university-professor raising thousands every year to give her students the chance to visit NYC; a ballet teacher with a penchant for playing Led Zeppelin in class; and a high school teacher who helmed an entire 68-student-strong dance program completely on her own.

Nominations close on Wednesday, March 1. DT Awards will be presented at the Dance Teacher Summit. Nominees must be available to attend.
