Choreographer Resume

A choreographer resume is written by a person who likes to dance and also see others dance. A choreographer has the ability to think of new steps and innovate and improvise movements that are fine and pleasing to the eyes.

With the start of many dance competition programs on TV, this profession has captured the eye of all the followers and budding professionals of the industry. Even amateurs have received a huge boost in their confidence and interest via these programs. Because of the television industry's wide spread reach, dancing and singing have once again become the eye candies of the preachers of the popular culture. Even the ones who don't know how to dance, now want to dance and they can do so by watching the contestants' moves on television and joining dance classes, which has become one of the most popular vocational hobbies.

Choreographer is the name given to the professional who knows and understands his/her craft of dance and has the ability to choreograph dance steps for others. It means designing a sequential order of movements and forms for the dancer, which he/she will follow while performing a dance.

While writing a choreographer resume, one needs to take care of the following points:

Mention all important performances - When you are writing such a resume, it will be a good idea to, under a separate section, mention all the important performances which you have choreographed. Include the stars, if any, for whom you have choreographed in those performances. This will give a clear idea to the recruiter about your abilities as a choreographer.

Mention your specialty in dance forms - Dance has many forms. The recruiter wants to find out the dance form in which you specialize. You must only apply for the relevant projects and also mention in your resume about the dance form that you specialize in.

Mention any awards won by you - It will be a nice idea for you to mention about any dance related awards won by you. Mention such information without fail under the achievements section in your resume. This will add more mileage to the impression factor of your resume.
