For nearly a decade, the annual event has recognized dance produced for movies, TV shows/specials, music videos, and digital media. This year's World Choreography Awards nominees were just announced, and the list—highlighting dance made over the course of 2018—is incredibly impressive.
Check out the full group of nominees below. Winners will be revealed November 11 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. University of Southern California dance department benefactor Glorya Kaufman will also receive a special Next Frontier of Dance Governance Honor during the ceremony.
