The World Choreography Awards (WCA) is a global annual award show celebrating and honoring the best in media choreography. They are like the Oscars of dance. I bring this to your attention because we all know how important choreography is to our ballroom dances and it is about time choreography gets noted for its own merit!
The World Choreography Awards is set to be live streamed from The Avalon Hollywood on
May 16. Produced/directed by Allen Walls, George Paige and Cheryl Baxter-Ratliff.
The WCA recognizes choreographic achievement in Motion Picture, Music Video, Commercials, Television Episodic, Television Award Show/Special, Digital Content, Digital Content Independent, Television Reality Show/Competition and Live Stage Performance for Broadcast. The show will also have amazing performances by the world’s top choreographers and dancers.
“This is your only opportunity to see the best 45 clips of dance content that graced all media platforms in 2019! All choreographed by the best dance makers in the world today, most of which will be joining us as our audience. This is the only time all these amazing choreographers will be in the same place at the same time. You won’t want to miss the most exciting night of dance filled with unforgettable live performances!” - World Choreography Awards.
The World Choreography Awards will be hosted by Emmy nominated choreographer and two-time “Dancing with the Stars” champion, CHERYL BURKE. Cheryl is also the co-host of the Pretty Messed Up podcast with her Season 29 partner AJ McLean. She also designs a line of fashionable face masks with Bailey Blue. She’s an inductee in the Asian Hall of Fame and a passionate mental health advocate.

***We have received contributions from individuals who would like to have a dear relative or friend who passed on remembered that loved to dance or was a dance aficionado. We call these memorial contributions. Perhaps you would like to have someone memorialized in this manner. Make a donation and give us their name. We have on our website a yellow brick road to engrave their name to a brick as a memorial to that person. This contribution will assist future generations of dancers and help keep young people more positive and healthy.
