People who set choreographies are called choreographers and may develop their own dance techniques as a part of their choreographic work.
The rejection of ballet vocabulary and terms by modern dance resulted in the term choreographer replacing Ballet Master and therefore choreography came to mean the art of making dances.
In the early 1920s dance studies (dance practice, critical theory, analysis and history) began to be considered a serious academic discipline.

A good choreographer has been a good audience member, in the same way that a good writer was a good reader.
They generally don't dance ballet, more a ballet-modern hybrid (one local choreographer has said she doesn't make ballets, the genre in which she was trained, because she can't afford the shoes).

 Dance Magazine: Vaslav Nijinsky - Dancer/choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky remembered in exhibition
As a choreographer, he moved away from the center of the ballet tradition to create the first modernist choreography.
Through Hodson's work with Kenneth Archer, Nijinsky's choreography has been reconstructed, and it is possible to form a new estimation of his importance as a choreographer and a modernist, although modernism is a slippery term.
Vaslav Nijinsky, the twentieth century's most celebrated male dancer and a trailblazing choreographer, was born in Kiev, Ukraine, and trained in dance in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he joined the famed Maryinsky Theater troupe in 1907.

 Marius Petipa
His father Jean Antoine Petipa was a dancer, choreographer and teacher who brought up both Marius and his elder brother, Lucien, to follow the same profession.
Petipa’s superiors could not have sensed the depth of his flair for ballet production (given his lack of celebrity at the time, it likely would have made no difference) when Jules Perrot was called to St. Petersburg in 1848 at the behest of Fanny Elssler to become resident ballet master.
The immediate effect of Perrot, a choreographer of international stature, on Petipa’s career was to reaffirm his duties as a dancer.

 Ballet Talk for Dancers -> What makes a ballet choreographer different from other choreographers?
The preoccupation with new material and "pushing the envelope" -- movement newness for its own sake -- is something that came in in the 1960s, with the Judson Church movement -- not in ballet then, of course; that was later.
All choreographers are working with the body, the space and the music(or timing, if somebody doesn't use the misic).
I can compare choreographing with the magician, who pulls over from his pocket, one by one, tied handckechieves.

 The Video Choreographer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Choreographer is a collection of software components conceived and developed by Sergi Jordà as a result of a grant given by the IUA in 1995.
There are many software programs which generate images from sound or music, many even in real-time, but the aim of the Choreographer differs completely from most of these digital lightshows or psychedelic generators, as it is intended to give to the user, a complete control over the video effects and their relation to the sound.
For this reason, and also because most of the effects are quite time consuming, this software does not operate in real-time, but rather as standard Premiere plug-ins which can be applied to any Premiere project consisting of both still images (bmp, tif, pict, etc.) videoclips (avi, quicktime, etc.) and audio clips (wav, snd, etc.).

Young and spirited choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan is hoping to capture the nuances of Indian youth in her debut film "Main Hoon Na" that stars Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen, Suniel Shetty, Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao.
Only time will tell whether "Main Hoon Na" is able to portray today's urban teens who are more caught up in a rigid educational system and rapidly changing social norms, grappling with the generation gap, peer pressure, sexual doubts, and a whole youth subculture than with chasing girls and losing their virginity.
It remains to been seen if this choreographer succeeds where her colleague V. Tharun Kumar failed with the comedy "Nayee Padosan" last year.
