Knighthood for Robert Cohan
26th June 2019
We are delighted that our Patron and friend Robert Cohan has recently been awarded a knighthood by Her Majesty the Queen for Services to Dance, as announced in the 2019 Birthday Honours List. The award is an acknowledgement of the exceptional contribution to contemporary dance that Cohan has made over seven decades.
Robert commented on his award saying, “I am delighted to receive such a tremendous honour, not only for myself but also for dance, the art form to which I have devoted the greater part of my life and which I love so much […] I am both happy and lucky to find that even at my age I can still be in the studio and create. Being involved with dance has always been and still is an extraordinary way to live my life.”
May we add our congratulations to one of our biggest supporters and an individual of immense talent, vision, and impact on our industry.
