A panel of arts figures, chaired by Alistair Spalding, artistic director of Sadler’s Wells, has chosen a shortlist of ten dance videos. The winner, chosen by the public, will received £2,000, while the work will be showcased at Sadler’s Wells Sampled, the theatre’s annual taster weekend. This year’s finalists include the Auckland-based hip hop crew Sweet & Sour, Seoul company Modern Table and an all-male work by London choreographer John Ross. This year’s winner will be announced on November 3. To vote, go to
