This year's Princess Grace Award winners were announced yesterday—and they include some very familiar faces.
The Princess Grace crowd is an incredibly distinguished bunch. Past winners in the dance category include Skylar Brandt, Beckanne Sisk, Isabella Boylston, Sarah Lane, Drew Jacoby, Tiler Peck, Cindy Salgado, David Hallberg, Michelle Dorrance, and Gillian Murphy—to name just a few.
