Choreographer Wen Wei Wang is this year’s recipient of the Chrystal Dance Prize, awarded annually to an established artist from Western Canada. In addition to the $10,000 he receives to create a new work with an international artist, Wang will have a two-week residency at Dance Victoria Studios next season. He has also been nominated as one of seventy-five finalists for the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award. Other BC artists making headlines include Vanessa Goodman, who recently received the Iris Garland Emerging Choreographer Award ($5000), and Su-Feh Lee (pictured) for receiving the Isadora Award for Excellence in Dance ($500 plus subsidized rehearsal space).
