The 9th Annual World Choreography Awards (WCA) celebrate creativity and innovation by recognizing global excellence in the art of choreography in movies, TV, music video and digital media. Based on works completed in 2018, the winners of eight categories will be announced at the Red Carpet Ceremony on November 11 at The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. The show is open to the public and but with a limited number of tickets.
WCA recognizes choreographic achievement in Motion Picture, Music Video, Commercials, Television Episodic, Television Award Show/Special, Digital Content, Digital Content Independent and Television Reality Show/Competition.
The show is produced and directed by Allen Walls and Cheryl Baxter-Ratliff and will feature live performances by USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance choreographed by Barak Marshall. Mark Ballas will perform his nominated music video, “Stampede,” and Lyrik Cruz who will recreate the number from his nominated movie “Shine.” Karen Forcano and Ricardo Vega from NBC’s “World of Dance” will perform their nominated piece that helped them achieve runner-up on last year’s season.
Many VIPs and celebrities are confirmed to attend or serve as presenters, including Rachel Bloom “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,”, Keltie Knight (ET), Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova (DWTS).
“With over 350 applicants, narrowing down the submissions was not an easy task,” Allen Walls explained. “We were excited to reveal the nominees.” Veteran choreographer Christopher Scott leads the field with three nominations for his work on the reality competition show “So You Think You Can Dance”, the feature film “Zombies” and the digital short “Funraise the Musical.”
