The Sage Awards for Dance was an annual awards night founded in 2004 and led by Dana Kassel and Stuart Pimsler. The awards were presented to honor choreographers, dancers, educators, presenters, scenic and lighting designers, visual artists and others artists working in dance in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. The awards, named in honor of the late Sage Cowles, were created to celebrate the dance community and bring national attention to the tremendous amount of high caliber dance activity in the Twin Cities. Awardees were selected by an anonymouse panel of peers, recognizing outstanding achievements in performance, design, education, and other categories. The Minnesota SAGE Awards for Dance were supported by several organizations and funders, including The Cowles Center for Dance and The Performing Arts. The Awards ceased operations in 2016.
