Showreels


"Dancers, choreographers and dance companies often advertise through showreels. Showreels are edited videos of sample dance work, prepared to showcase an individual or company.

Your task is to research the use of showreels to advertise the work of dancers and choreographers, then create your own showreel, showcasing your own work. You need to work with a partner, who will help you to video and edit your showreel."
