Relationships with occupations

Essential skill

Notate different dances is an essential skill of the following occupations:

Choreologist: Choreologists are specialised creators of dance in specific styles or traditions, such as ethnic dance, early dance or baroque dance. Their work is contextualised historically and sociologically as an expression of the human group that developed it. Choreologists analyse dance from intrinsic aspects: theory, practice and epistemology of movements in itself. They also study dance from the extrinsic perspective: the social, ethnological, etnographical and sociological context in which dance is developed.

Optional skill

Notate different dances is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Choreographer: Choreographers create sequences of movements in which motion, form or both are specified. Some choreographers also take up the role of coordinating, teaching and rehearsing performers in the production of the choreography. They can also act as a movement coach for actors.
Performing arts school dance instructor: Performing arts school dance instructors educate students in specific theory and, primarily, practice-based dance courses at a specialised dance school or conservatory at a higher education level. They provide theoretical instruction in service of the practical skills and techniques the students must subsequently master for dance. Performing arts school dance instructors monitor the students’ progress, assist individually when necessary, and evaluate their knowledge and performance on the dance through, often practical, assignments, tests and examinations.
