ROGER SINHA WINS THE 2016 CULTURAL DIVERSITY PRIZE IN DANCE
The Cultural Diversity Prize in Dance, presented by the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the PRIX DE LA DANSE DE MONTREAL 2016 was awarded to Roger Sinha. The $10,000 Prize is given every year to a culturally diverse individual or organisation with the aim to recognize either their significant contribution to the dance milieu, or a remarkable production presented in the previous season (2015 winner Nyata Nyata Compagnie de Danse, Zab Maboungou).
Created in 2011 by choreographer Marie Chouinard, the PRIX DE LA DANSE DE MONTRÉAL recognizes the excellence of individuals, companies and institutions within the dance domain. The prizes serve to reaffirm Montreal’s role as a vibrant dance capital and to raise its international profile.
Roger Sinha and Sinha Danse wish to congratulate the other talented winners of the 2016 PRIX DE LA DANSE DE MONTREAL: Édouard Lock, Grand Prix de la Danse de Montréal 2016 ; Sophie Corriveau, Prix Interprète ; Daina Ashbee, Prix Découverte et Prix Meilleure Oeuvre Chorégraphique de la saison ; Gilles Savary, Prix du Gestionnaire Culturel.
