After watching about 1,000 Juvenile level programs this year, I'm beginning to wonder...at what level do skaters begin to use choreographers?
At our rink, the coaches do all of the choreography - even at higher levels - and it seems to work well up to a point. And I'm guessing some coaches are definitely more talented in choreography than others.
But, if a skater is serious (as serious as one can be at lower levels), when is it time to think about bringing someone in with special knowledge regarding choreographing programs?
Or maybe I'm not even asking the right question...
Maybe the question needs to start with "What exactly does the choreographer do?"
I think I only *think* I know the answer to this question.
