Quest for Creativity (Q4C) is a one-time choreography video submission opportunity founded by Audrey Weisiger alongside Young Artists Showcase to offer an additional online choreography competition platform to young skating choreographers.

Q4C is for skaters under the age of 21 who want to pursue choreography and are able to commit to sending in one video under 4 minutes of their work. This must be one piece and not a choreographic resume.

After the submission deadline, a committee of experienced skating and dance choreographers will select their favorite video from all submissions. The video with the most votes from the selection committee will be notified by Friday, May 15th. The winner will be named the “Emerging Choreographer” at CORE Camp in July and have the opportunity to create an ensemble piece on 5-10 skaters while onsite at Camp.
