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 award to Richard Bonynge for his huge recorded catalogue of all the major ballets and his unique recordings of standard items in the ballet canon unrecorded elsewhere (Russian Rarities, Homage to Pavlova etc). He has given access to the repertoire for many people unable to listen to important musical works in any other way.Ē


Past Patronís Award winners:

2008 - Northern Ballet Theatre
2007 - Darcey Bussell
2006 - Strictly Come Dancing
