We hope you will join us at the 2023 Boston Dance Alliance gala at Arts at the Armory in Somerville the evening of Thursday June 15


  • This year, for the first time, our panel of former Dr. Michael Shannon Dance Champions chose to honor three dancer/educators who have left extraordinary legacies to our community: Ann Brown Allen, Deborah Mason, and Dianne Walker! Plus the BDA Board honors Steve Adelson, the second-generation owner of Teddy Shoes in Cambridge, as the 2023 BDA Unsung Hero.  


  • Once again we will gather in person -- and welcome those from across the world to celebrate with us on livestream!


  • Please consider making a special gala donation to BDA to honor one – or more – of our awardees!


Arts at the Armory is wheelchair accessible, and the 2023 BDA Gala will be ASL interpreted. If you need a support person in order to attend this event, we offer a complimentary ticket for a companion or caregiver. Please contact Carmen at crizzo@bostondancealliance.org to arrange this or any further disability access needs. 


In addition, the BDA Online Auction includes exciting items and experiences for the whole family – and we will be adding special items throughout the spring. Got an item or service you’d like to contribute? Know a business or institution that would like to sponsor the festivities? Contact Carmen to discuss!


Your generous support helps Boston dance thrive!
