I am a high school senior and I attend Page High School in Franklin, Tennessee. In order to graduate, as seniors, we must complete a Senior Project, so I have chosen dance or choreography to be my topic. However, I want a few questions to be answered like while picking music what should a choreographer go by, the audience they want to appeal to, their likes, or others? Secondly, do most choreographers choreograph their dance first then find music to fit it or do they find music and make the steps fit? Thirdly, what makes a dance look good?

    Choreography is as different for choreographers as writing poems for poets and painting pictures for artists. For the same reason, choreography is a creative activity as it simply put as the creation of dances. It has both similarity and differences from other performing arts activities. For example, in the same way as a theatrical director must cast roles for a play, the choreographer must choose his or her dancers for the work. This is often critical because choreographers may choreograph particular strengths for a dancer or give them variations to improve their weaknesses. Dancers will often say that a variation has been choreographed on them rather than for them. Besides, a dance cannot be choreographed first on paper or in the mind of the artist and then set on dancers. So, choreography is expensive to produce because it means studio time, a rehearsal pianist or recording tape, and dancers. For this reason, it is difficult for choreographers to describe in advance what is the result is going to be before seeing it on the dancers. The best dance is the one in which the actions conforms perfectly to timings.
