The 15th Beijing Dance Academy Awards honored 16 Chinese dance dramas on Dec 19 with a gala performance at the school's theater.

The showcase featured eight award-winning dance works, accompanied by the Morin Khuur (the horsehead fiddle, a typical folk musical instrument of the Mongolian ethnic group), by Minzu University of China, which won the best performance award, and Airs of the States, a traditional Chinese dance piece by the Beijing Dance Academy, which was awarded the best dance work.

According to Guo Lei, head of the Beijing Dance Academy, the awards began in 1983, and the event is co-organized by the Beijing Dance Academy and Beijing Dancers Association. The 16 award-winning dance dramas display a variety of styles and themes, including ballet and Chinese folk dance. Besides dance works from Chinese art schools, the competition is also open to amateur dancers across a range of age groups from children to elders.
