RWB Honour Roll of Distinguished Alumni

In celebration of our 80th anniversary, the RWB has launched the Honour Roll of Distinguished Alumni in 2019-20. The Honour Roll will recognize and pay tribute to the artists and builders who’ve made a significant contribution to the RWB and/or the world of dance. Candidates will be nominated through an open nomination process and selected on the basis of impact. The call for nominations is open until September 30, 2019. Please click the button below to fill out the nomination form.​

The RWB Honour Roll was designed to ensure the incredible contributions of artists and builders of the past are understood and cherished by future generations. This important initiative is being launched in conjunction with the RWB’s 80th anniversary season, and the nomination cycle will repeat in conjunction with future anniversaries. All recognitions are at the discretion of the Selection Committee and in this, the first, year there are no limits on the number of inductees

We appreciate your questions and feedback regarding this initiative and encourage you to continue to bring them forward.


If you are submitting more than one nomination, please prepare a separate nomination form and support material for each candidate. Candidates may not apply for the Awards; they must be nominated.

We know there are hundreds and maybe even thousands of Alumni who have played an important role in creating, moulding, and shaping the RWB as we know it today. The nomination process is vitally important to the integrity of RWB Honour Roll and is a standard practice with initiatives of this nature. A process such as this allows the Selection Committee to make a well-informed decision.

A new Selection Committee, carefully chosen based on their institutional knowledge and expertise and representative of the RWB community at large, will be appointed with every round of nominations. Members of the Selection Committee are not permitted to participate in the nomination process. Applications that are not fully completed will still be considered, but the final decision will be impacted by the nomination materials.

Email nomination form and support materials to before the deadline of September 30, 2019. For further information, contact or 204.956.0183 ext. 2205.
