Dance Choreography -- The act of creating movement. The choreographer may be the performer or one of the performers, but the choreographer does not have to perform in the entry.
The dance can be performed by an individual or a group.
An explanation of the origin of the dance and/or the significance of the choreography might be a useful addition to the artist's statement when submitting a dance choreography entry that involves traditional, cultural or regional dances. Whether an entry displays formal dance technique or a simple approach, it will be judged primarily on how well the student uses his or her artistic vision to portray the theme, originality and creativity.
The dance must:
Be a new and original work based on the theme "I Matter Because". A large part of the judging is based how the work relates to the theme as spelled out in the Artist's (written) Statement.
