What is a Dance Choreographer - The Professional Dancer


A dance choreographer can be easily described as a dance instructor. They don’t normally follow the set of rules that is commonly found in fixed dance routines, like ballroom dancing, but follows their own experience to come up with unique dance notations that is quite common in dancing competitions where originality is a criteria.

Choreography

A dance choreographer bases its teachings in the art of choreography. It is considered as an art due to the various innovations that is mostly limited to the creativity of an individual.

By definition, choreography is the process of designing various form and movements of the human body -- much like a person teaching you new body motions through their own unique experience. Dance choreography has a more specific scope -- integrating new and unique dancing techniques and maneuvers through the inclusion of set dancing styles today.

For example, a dance choreographer can incorporate various dancing styles for a cheerleading competition -- like ballroom, Rock and Roll, and the likes to come up with a new dance maneuver.

Dance Routines

A dance choreographer teaching new dancing moves that involves various body movements -- not necessarily dependent on fixed dance moves today. In most cases, dance routines taught by a choreographer includes events, like cheerleading, gymnastics, cinematography, fashion shows, marching bands, ice skating, stage shows, and even in competitive dancing, like dancesports.

The technique of coming up with new dance moves is termed as dance composition. This includes 2 fundament techniques, namely improvisation and planned choreography.

The fundamentals of improvisation can be easily defined as "impromptu" dance lessons. No specific steps are followed and choreographers base body movements depending on the type of music used for the dance.

In most cases, improvisation is mostly determined by the personal interpretation of the instructor or the dancers itself. Planned choreography is purely the work of the choreographer. Movements and scores are all directed by the instructors without any need for personal interpretation from dancers.

After completeing this ebook, you will feel like a professional dance choreographer, ready to open up your own "dance academy" and start giving dance lessons!
