Original Choreography

The dance performance(s) for the 2022 Arts Alive will be chosen through a submission process. Arts Alive wants to include more original teacher and student work in the showcase performance. If you, your students, or one of your classes have a piece you feel should be considered for Arts Alive, please follow the submission guidelines below: 

Prepare a video of an original dance piece. 

 2022 Arts Alive Submission Guidelines 

Film the dance piece in a studio, gym, or stage with FULL lights. No light cues or fade out or up. This allows the committee to see the full piece. However, there can be light cues for the performance. 

  • Content must not contain material or language that may be considered inappropriate for a family-centered audience. Be judicious in music and movement choices. 
  • Suggested length is 5 minutes or less showing a completed or nearly finished piece. 
  • If available, please wear costumes for the video. If not, please have dancers wear all black. 
  • Piece can be the work of a single choreographer or a collaborative effort among students or between teacher/students or guest artists. The piece does not have to be from a performance. 
  • Include all relevant program information (e.g. title, music, choreographer, dancer(s), costume, and design ideas). 
  • Digital submissions can be submitted via the Arts Alive website: wvde.us/arts-alive. 
  • All submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 11, 2022.
