Evans who will be featured on the magazine’s Web site in July and will appear on the cover of the July ’10 edition of Dance Teacher, also will receive the publication’s Lifetime Achievement Award in New York in August.
“The Lifetime Achievement Award recipient is chosen by the magazine’s editorial staff,” said Karen Hildebrand, Dance Teacher’s Editor-in Chief, who was on hand to interview Evans. “And this year we’re recognizing Bill Evans for his performances, for his influence on the field of dance, as well as for his contributions as an educator,” she explained.
