Mission Statement

The mission of the The Martha Hill Dance Fund is to honor, perpetuate, and reward Martha Hill’s commitment to dance education and performance internationally.

It intends to accomplish this mission by awarding the annual Martha Hill Lifetime Achievement Award to one or more recipients who have demonstrated the qualities for which Martha Hill was most revered both as an educator and as a creative force.

A secondary goal is to preserve the legacy of Martha Hill through archives, published materials, a website, a documentary film, and other projects established in her name.  

The third goal is to give the Young Professional Award and the Mid-Career Award to deserving dance artists.
