Each year, the Dance Teacher Awards honor outstanding educators for their contributions to the field. Recipients have included studio owners, professors, program directors and more whose specialties run the gamut of dance genres. This year, we recognize L.A.'s consummate jazzman, Joe Tremaine, with our award of distinction. Sylvia Palmer-Zetler, Dawn Axam, Bridgit Lujan and Sue Sampson-Dalena inspire us with their commitment to grooming future ballerinas, fostering tomorrow's choreographic voices and insisting upon well-rounded training.
