In 2008, she was honored with the Prix de la révélation chorégraphique de l'année du Syndicat de la critique for her work Le Cri. She was appointed Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture in January 2015, and in 2017 she received the choreographer award from the Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques. In France, Belaza’s company is regularly invited to major venues and festivals.
