Questions regarding the ontology of artworks have been discussed by scholars for many years, however, increased digitalisation of such artworks means we are now facing new ontological issues. This paper seeks to raise questions regarding the ontological status of online dance films. By examining philosophical discourses from Graham McFee, Peggy Phelan, Richard Wollheim and Philip Auslander, I investigate how recorded versions of dance performances that exist on the Internet impact on established understandings of dance ontology.
