DIGITAL: Bessies Town Hall

Oct. 26, 2020, 5:30 pm7:00 pm EDT



The pandemic has impacted all of us, including The Bessies. As one might have anticipated, there will be changes to the ways we mark The Bessies in 2020. Please join us for this Town Hall to learn more to engage with us in discussion around the upcoming December events.

“This past year has presented unprecedented challenges, but the NYC dance community has responded to them with creativity and compassion,” said Martin Wechsler, Chair of The Bessies Steering Committee. “Due to the impact of Covid-19, we decided it was not appropriate to give awards this year. That said, an equally important aspect of the annual Bessies’ ceremony is to gather together as a community; reflect on our collective experience; celebrate our accomplishments; mourn our losses; and lift up our work publicly. We look forward to sharing The Bessies this year in the digital space.”

Additional details about the event will be announced in the coming weeks. We will discuss updated information about the Bessies and plans for 2020–21 season at the Bessies Town Hall, hosted by Gibney, on Monday, October 26, from 5:30 to 7pm.
