Gertrude Lippincott Award

Awarded annually to the best English-language article published in dance studies.

The annual Gertrude Lippincott award of $500 recognizes the best English-language dance studies article published in the last year, recognizing its excellence in the field of dance scholarship. This award is a befitting tribute to Gertrude Lippincott of Minneapolis, one of the founders of the original Congress on Research in Dance, and nationally recognized for her choreography, performance, company directing, teaching and dance writing. Lippincott founded the Modern Dance Center of Minneapolis. From the 1940s-1960s she was also an editor for "Dance Observer and "Dance Magazine," which published her articles. The award is for works published in the previous calendar year (2023).
