    Default Credit, etc.

    Still, when someone has gone to the effort of developing a choreography, it is just good manners for those who borrow it to acknowledge the source.

    Dear Shanazel,
    I guess that for me it is not important to get the credit for the choreography; nice if it happens, I guess, but not essential to my psychological well being. Good manners, on the other hand ARE important, so you have a point there.

    I agree that the original choreographer should get credit and use the phrase "staged by" to acknolwedge that there have been some changes to the original.

    Ex: Original choreography by Aisha Azar and staged by Jane Doe.

    Some choreographers will not allow any changes to their work, so it's best to ask. I like to credit the musician/composer to help promote their work too.

    I totally see your point, absolutely. I'm just offering up my thoughts on it.
    I totally agree with you
