Next May the 18th the Víctor Ullate Dance Foundation Fundación para la Danza Víctor Ullate celebrates the first edition of the “UNIDOS POR LA DANZA” Awards, recognition os excellence. The Awards will be presented at a Gala hosted by the journalist Carme Chaparro at CaixaForum Madrid where, in addittion to the Awards ceremony, several pieces of Dance will be performed by Víctor Ullate Ballet.

These Awards, organized in collaboration with the Obra Social “la Caixa”, are based on the VALUES of the Víctor Ullate Dance Foundation: EXCELLENCE, WORK and EFFORT, and aim to “Recognize the career of personalities of the art and culture with a trajectory of excellence that are a source of motivation and inspiration for others.” To this end, five categories related to the world of arts, culture and social work have been created, in addition to an Honorary Award, which will be awarded to an institution for its support to the world of culture.

The awarded in this first edition of the “Unidos por la Danza” Awards are:

  • Gastronomy – Mario Sandoval
  • Cinema – Rossy de Palma
  • Social Work – Padre Ángel
  • Music – Estrella Morente
  • Dance – Nacho Duato
  • Honorary Award – Comunidad de Madrid


The origin of these Awards goes back to December 2016, the date on which the “UNIDOS POR LA DANZA” campaign is launched with a Charity Gala at Teatros del Canal in Madrid. In this Gala, point shoes of consecrated dancers were collected with great personal stories of self-improvement, bravery and courage that served as inspiration and motivation to young people who fight for their passion.

The diffusion of culture through Dance moved the VÍCTOR ULLATE DANCE FOUNDATION to launch this initiative to raise funds to continue supporting children with great skills for Dance and limited economic resources. During the Gala, in the lobby before the audiotorium of CaixaForum, the point shoes  that were collected will be exhibited and can be purchased by donation to the Foundation.
