Question how did you manage to have the dancer as a separate footage? Was it done in after effects? I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

The dancer was shot against a green screen background. I used the bundled keylight effect to remove the green screen color and then render a final clip to the Quicktime PNG + Alpha format. There are several articles and tutorials here which can help you to understand and practice the Color Keying process in After Effects.

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
