Choreography is the act of creating a script or score for dancers. The result of this planning (i.e., the detailed description of the dance) is also called choreography.

The goals are:

  • entertain the audience
  • make the dance fit the music
  • show skills of the dancers

By analogy, planning of any complex movements is also called choreography.

For example, fight scenes such as in martial arts films are essentially complex pantomimes in which participants simulate hand to hand combat and need careful choreography to avoid injury.
