At this current time, there is no other company that sells of rights to choreography online. While there are some companies that teach dance classes and combinations virtually, none sell copyrights to full dance choreographies and pieces. There are other similar platforms and applications in other artistic disciplines such as Shutterstock, 500 Pix, Dreamstime, Twenty20, Promo by Slidely, Artlist, Premium Beat, Musicbed, Soundstripe, iStock, Promo, Playscripts, Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), and Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency (CMRRA) to name only a few.
The choreographers retain all rights to their work. Choreography Online simply owns the website and any original content generated.
Yes, you may. However, you must list both the choreographer’s name and the rights purchase license number in any upload of the performance onto the internet.
We will be reviewing all choreography that is submitted for sale to ensure that videos are high-quality and that they contain no material that is inappropriate for ALL audiences. Since we understand that personal preferences are completely subjective, we will, for the most part, accept a wide variety of choreography and styles, provided the video material and explanation text are accurately detailed and of satisfactory condition. Choreography Online reserves the right to refuse any submission that we feel is inappropriate for whatever reason, below a certain standard of professionalism, or that could hurt the reputation of the company in any way.
In the future, we would like to integrate an easy way of hiring choreographers through the Choreography Online platform to create original works for you, but at the moment, it is up to each choreographer to indicate the ways in which he or she may be contacted.
Choreography Online will be available in any country where citizens have access to an internet connection.
Opening an account and uploading your choreography so as to sell it on the platform costs nothing. Choreography Online takes 10% of the licence fee only when one is sold. With respect to credit card processing fees, in our ideal world the choreographer would be able to decide whether or not to add the cost of those fees into the license price or not.
Choreography Online aims to remove that frustration all together and have people focus on what they are good at and what they want to do - whether that is choreography or coaching. We understand that most of us are not experts at both and have proclivity to one or the other. We hope this platform allows a win-win for all stakeholders especially to students eager to improve and grow artistically and technically.
