Overview of CORD Awards

The CORD Awards were established in 1995 to recognize excellence in the field, contribute to motivating further research, and signal to the scholarly world at large that the works and individuals recognized are highly valued by those involved in dance research. The awards contribute not only to the visibility of the individuals and works so honored, but also to the visibility of dance research and to CORD's continuing drive for excellence in scholarly endeavors.
