Dance videos can be everything
from fun and upbeat, to gentle and pulling on the heartstrings. Whatever your
preferred dance style, nail your video by trying some specially made templates.
Take a look at a few of our top tips when it comes to planning your shoot:
- Organise your shoot so that everyone has a schedule and everything runs on time
- Nail your lighting: If you’re recording lots of people moving around quickly, then you’ll need a bright room or additional lighting
- Make sure backgrounds are clean and uncluttered so you don’t distract from the dancing
Here are three templates created especially for dance videos. These are included with a subscription to Envato Elements and they’re made for Adobe After Effects.
1. Street Dance

2. Plexus Dance Intro

3. The Stage is Yours
