The Showcase provides a concert platform for professional choreographers and performers, and pre-professional artists training in dance academies. The performances will take place in the theaters located in the ShangShin Univeristy or Arko Theater and will be open to registered participants of the WDAAP event and the general public.

Dance works presented may not exceed 10 minutes in length.

An international panel will consider and evaluate all submissions based on criteria in relation to the quality of the work submitted and accompanying documentation. Proposals for the Showcase will be submitted online and should comprise the following:
