“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” — Plato






We celebrate our MUSIC AND DANCE category by including women who are composers, lyricists, musicologistsarrangers, producers, engineers, and drill writers. We also welcome those in allied professions that include women who engage in private teaching, arranging, being published, choreographing, writing curriculum, holding recitals for students, or artistic embellishment for their productions.  This includes professional performers in opera, ballet, symphony orchestra, bands, jazz, folk or ethnic dance troupes, choral groups, singers, dancers, and instrumentalists.


“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”

— Martha Graham
