The National Dance Awards are once again up for grabs and the only category that really matters is the one where you get to choose the winner.
The Audience Award, won last year by Motionhouse, is voted for via text message, standard charge not premium rate, and the winner is the company that receives the largest number of votes 'in relation to the size of their audience', whatever that means.
Presumably Wired Aerial Dance Theatre could win easily if 400 people voted for them because the number of performances they have completed is far less than Rambert. So if 80% of Wired Aerial's audience votes for them and only 10% of Rambert's vote for Rambert it should be an easy win.
We can only speculate because there are no contact details on the site for us to ask anyone! It would also be handy to know just how they establish the size of a particular dance company's audience.
To vote for your favourite text the name of the company to 07946 702 700 and do so once only, don't try and stack the vote, leave that to Diebold!
