Interesting Facts about the career

  • Why should a choreographer have dance training?

Choreographers employ creative and original styles for dance moves and performances. They require a strong dance background that allows them to demonstrate steps for dancers to imitate. Through dance training, choreographers are able to create and teach these sequences of movement to dancers. Dancers, in general, begin training early, often in childhood. Through years of dance training, aspiring choreographers learn a variety of techniques and dance styles to incorporate into a future career.

The type of dance training choreographers need depends on the interpretation of dance they wish to produce. For example, a ballet choreographer studies classical ballet, while a musical theater choreographer may study jazz, modern and dramatic dance. Choreographers often study as many forms of dance as possible in order to command a wider movement repertoire.


  • Quick Random Facts

1. Many dancers combine performance work with teaching or choreography.
2. Most dancers stop performing by their late thirties because of the physical demands on the body.
3. Some continue to work in the field as dance teachers and coaches, or artistic directors.
4. Tight competition and the number of applicants will continue to vastly exceed the number of job openings.
