What this job is about

Batman has Robin; Snooki has J-Woww; and choreographers have their assistant choreographers. Andwhile they might not be fighting crime or shooting reality shows, the assistant choreographer takes on a big responsibility. Whether it's auditioning and directing new dancers, choosing the right music or coming up with a new routine, the assistant choreographer helps support the choreographer in his or her functions. It could mean working for a Broadway show, in TV or helping to practice a sequence for a new music video. You'll definitely need a background in dance, but leadership and listening skills are musts too. With the ability to follow directions, you could be the jelly to your choreographer's peanut butter.
