Contest Information

Send in your contest submission by April 18, 2020. Winners will be announced on INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY: April 29, 2020. 

Create your own dance with four “signature moves” that represent the values, personality, and characteristics of your school, class, or group. Your submission should include a video that depicts your moves, as well as four sentences explaining the meaning of your moves!

Download the “Love In A Big World” music track (this is the required music track for all submissions). Beyond this, you are welcome to get as creative as you like in showing us your moves. On the entry form, you’ll be asked to include a sentence explaining the meaning behind each of the 4 moves as well. We will evaluate submissions based on creativity and thoughtfulness of the content, both visual and written. 

Videos must use “Love In A Big World” as the soundtrack. Entrants can include the entire song or any portion of it, and videos must be 0:30 to 1:30 minutes in length.

Video submissions must be uploaded to YouTube and submitted online via the official contest submission form by April 18, 2020.
