Being A Dance Instructor Is Just One Talent

By Jessica Colby

Some things are improved greatly with additions. A cake, for instance is much more appealing with creamy frosting. A forlorn sofa is so much more enticing with pillows. And a dancer without choreography is like a stereo without music. Behind every good dancer is a great choreographer and a choreographer is much more than just a dance instructor. There are many important elements pertaining to dance.

There is lighting and sound. There is placement. Anybody that performs can use a choreographer. This person will set the tone and arrange a performance. There is a lot of work involved. There is rehearsing and teaching. There is auditions and planning. There is a lot of innovating and coordinating. All of this leads to a brilliant performance if done correctly. Choreography is dance training.

How does one go about finding a truly good choreographer? This article will focus on different approaches. Recommendations are always a good place to start. Also, what are you looking for?

See if there are other performances available to watch so that you can get an idea of the different types of style. You may be searching for a particular style. Most choreographers will be experienced in several types. If they do not have any scheduled performances available, perhaps you can request a tape. You might even be able to see something online if you ask.

Look for a style that agrees with you. Remember. A good teacher connects to the student and the student enjoys the lesson. A dancer that is having fun will always perform better. Therefore it is important to try an notice the repertoire between teacher and student.

There is a performer in every one of us. Everybody was born to perform and we all love to watch others perform. We all need our own experience. If you are in the position of searching for a choreographer, you are lucky indeed!
