The Patronís Award is given to an individual or organization that has significantly furthered the cause of dance in the UK. The recipient of the Award is chosen by legendary ballerina Dame Beryl Grey, Patron of the National Dance Awards.

Dame Beryl Grey said: ďI decided to give the 2008 Patronís Award to NBT in recognition of the contribution the Company has made to raising the profile of dance in the UK. From its beginnings as Englandís only regionally-based dance company it has attained its place as one of the countryís leading forces for dance, touring widely and performing for audiences who might otherwise not have an opportunity to experience diverse programmes of ballet of the highest quality.Ē
