  • Your responses...

  • Liz G. - No, all choreography isn't art. Broadly, choreography consists of organizing movement, which may be everything from a routine for aerobics or folk dance (which may be the basis for a work of art but isn't art itself) to a ballet performance.
  • Yoav K. - No, I do not believe that all choreography is art. Some choreography is created for the mere purpose of learning and studying the art of making dances. Although it might motivate, inspire or eventually become art, it not always begins as art.
  • Kyoko F. - Based on the definition in the Encyclopædia Britannica, choreography is art. However, art is very subjective. Thus I would not say that every choreography I have seen in my life is art.
