Choreographers are briefed by the Director about the production, and about the dance styles required. They may be expected to suggest their own ideas, or to realise the Director's vision, but they must always be able to assess the situation quickly in order to work effectively. They also work closely with a variety of production staff, including members of the Visual Effects and Costume Departments, Assistant Directors, etc., and may work with 2nd or 3rd Assistant Directors on scheduling and other organisational matters.

Choreographers are usually involved in the casting of dance roles for productions of all kinds. They also design routines, and may work with an Assistant to experiment in studios, before starting rehearsals with performers. Choreographers carry out any research required into period or contemporary dance styles.


Dancers should be able to learn and adapt quickly to any steps and routines they are taught, but different techniques are required for teaching routines to Actors, as it may be necessary to adjust the movements in order to find a style that suits the characters they portray. The movement is almost always narrative driven. If an Actor has to learn different dance styles, and a partner is required for rehearsals, an Assistant Choreographer may work with them as their dance partner in order to ensure that the routines match the Actor's abilities and capabilities, and also so that the Choreographer can see how the routines look as they develop, and before scenes are shot.

If no Assistant is employed on the production, Choreographers rehearse steps and routines with Actors and Dancers. They may work with the Director, or the Director of Photography, or the First and Third Assistant Directors to prepare performers for routines, and also to help set up shots using monitors to see how the movements will work on screen.

They check the movements during filming, and also on playback monitors, and to ensure the continuity of performances. Choreographers must have very close working relationships with Assistant Choreographers, and may also provide them with training and career development opportunities.
