*What are choreographic credits?
In the creative arts, credits are an acknowledgement of those who participated in the production. They are often shown at the end of movies and on CD jackets. In film, video, television, theatre etc., credits means the list of actors and behind-the-scenes staff who contributed to the production. (Source: Wikipedia)
