#250posts24hrsAAPI - 194: P.S. One Week Left For The Jadin Wong Dance Award Deadline

Sunday, May 21, 2017

I don't know too much about this award - so I'll just post up the info:
The Jadin Wong Award is a tribute to the life and work of renowned Chinese American actress, dancer, and comedienne Jadin Wong. Since her teenage years, Ms. Wong had been a pioneer and innovator of Asian American performing arts.

This year's award is intended to recognize an emerging Asian American choreographer whose work shows strong potential for greater achievement, who hopes to make a significant impact on the New York City artistic community. The award aims to recognize exemplary work that will continue to inspire young artists and the Asian American community for years to come. The winner will receive a cash award of $4,500 to provide educational assistance, training, and support with limited financial means to help them pursue their career as a choreographer.

A little help goes a long way.
