dance-tech.net @ The Bessies: Deborah Jowitt receives her award.

Deborah Jowitt received a deserved award with emotional and soulful words

Deborah Jowitt
For her decades of eloquence as the chronicler of our community; for her unflagging commitment to justice and revelation in her dance writing; and for the unquenchable vitality of her dancer's soul.

Deborah Jowitt began to dance professionally in 1953, to show her choreography in 1962, and to write a regular dance column for The Village Voice in 1967. Her articles on dance have appeared in numerous publications. She was a founding member of the Dance Critics Association, serving at various times as its treasurer, newsletter editor, and co-chairman, and from 1973 to 1983 directed the Critics Conference, a three-week workshop at the American Dance Festival. In addition to lecturing and teaching workshops both in the United States and abroad, she is on the faculty of the Dance Department of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Her third book, Time and the Dancing Image, won the de la Torre Bueno Prize in 1989. She was honored by the American Dance Guild in 1991, received a Bessie (New York Dance and Performance) Award in 1985, an Ernie from Dance/USA in 1998 for her contributions to dance criticism, and in 2001 an award from the Congress on Research in Dance (CORD) for her contributions to dance scholarship.
