805.3 (D) (3) Textual Descriptions, Photographs, Drawings, Illustrations, or the Like


A choreographic work may be fixed with a textual description, photographs, drawings, or any combination of the foregoing, provided that the description is specific enough to identify the precise movements of the dancers and provided that the description is sufficiently detailed to serve as directions for its performance. See Horgan, 789 F.2d at 163 (noting that photographs “may communicate a great deal” about a choreographic work, such as “a gesture, the composition of dancers’ bodies” as well as “the moments before and after the split second recorded.”).
