What this job is about
Ever see a flash mob video and think, "Wow. That was a perfectly-timed pirouette." If so, you might be hard-wired to be a choreographer. While other people are just excited at the prospect of coordinated dancing, you're more impressed with the work it took to plan all of those moves. Choreographers are responsible for coming up with dance routines for classes, commercials, music videos and yes, even flash mobs. They have an extensive knowledge of dance styles and trends, as well as the ability to seamlessly fit music with movement.It's often a natural next step for dancers and teachers and might be your ideal job if you've already had plenty of practice in the dance arena – and we don't mean by yourself in your bedroom.
