This study used a multiple-baseline across-behaviors design to evaluate the use of video self-evaluation on the performance of 3 dance movements. The procedure improved all 3 dance moves for 3 adolescents on a competitive dance team. Video self-evaluation was shown to be an efficient, accessible, and socially valid procedure to increase the performance of competitive dance movements.
