ISTD Members were recognised in the New Year Honour

ISTD Members were recognised in the New Year Honours, including Classical Indian Faculty Chair, Sujata Banerjee, who was awarded an MBE for services to dance. Sujata is a generous and inspiring teacher and will no doubt continue to trailblaze in the years to come. Another ISTD member who was honoured was Classical Indian Examiner Pratap Pawer who was awarded an MBE for services to dance, culture and community cohesion. We are very proud that our members were honoured this year.

Anita Young was awarded an MBE for services to classical ballet and dance education and Grand Council Member Antony van Lasst MBE was also recognised with a CBE for his services to dance and choreography. Other notable honours included a Knighthood for Richard Alson, who is recognised as one of the most inspiring and influential choreographers in the dance community. Congratulations to everyone recognised from the ISTD.
