A choreographer is one who creates dance positions, movements and sequences, usually “in time” with music, to express non-verbally social and cultural ideals and visions through participation and/or performance, either alone, with partners, or in groups.
Though choreography is most often associated with dance, it is also used in athletics such as gymnastics, figure skating, and synchronized swimming, and performance events like film-making, cheerleading, and fashion shows.
The word choreography is based in the Greek choreia=circle dance and graphic=writing, meaning the notation of dance moves. FYI - The same root word is used in medicine to describe involuntary movements of disease such as Huntington's chorea and, or St. Vitus Dance.
• “A painter is a choreographer of space.” ~ Barnett Newman
