ChoreoVideo.com is a web-based media resource designed to promote innovative instruction in the area of dance technology, specifically the relatively young genre - choreographic works for the screen. Merging the theoretical and aesthetic components of two motion arts—dance and video—these new teaching tools utilize interactive web technologies to educate artists in a specialized area of study that deals with the kinetics of camera motion, the moving body, and video editing as an extension of the choreographic process.

The site has been created specifically to provide technical, aesthetic, and theoretical support for the study and production of dance for the screen.
