It is the second time that Acosta Danza has been selected for a British award. In 2021, they were nominated as one of the best independent companies at the National Dance Awards, a category that focuses on groups that produce regular shows in Great Britain and do not receive state subsidy.

They are the only awards given by the body of professional dance critics in the UK.
