Carina Ari Medaljen


The purpose of the Carina Ari Medal is to reward persons who have commendably promoted Swedish dance.

The first award went to Birgit Cullberg in 1961.

The Award medal was sculpted by Carina Ari herself, and depicts her in a pose from her own ballet Månstrålen (The Moonbeam).
