Pola Nirenska

Pola Nirenska (1910-1992) survives through her work, and the gift of an annual award to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to dance. Supported by donations by Dr. Jan Karski, the late Ms. NirenskaÆs husband, the Fund is administered by the Washington Performing Arts Society which hosts a committee that annually decides to whom the award shall be given. Special consideration is given to the community of dance in Washington, DC where the couple lived and worked during their later years.
