Choreography is the art of arranging or designing of ballet or stage dance in a symbolic language. It is a form of Dramatic Work, there for in order to qualify for copyright registration as par the Act it must be reduced to writing.

According to the Indian copyright act, 1957("the act") does not clearly state this anywhere, it is an implied condition flowing from section 3 of the act, which talks about the publication of a work.

touqeer sir, Choreography is copyrighted in Laban system or shorthand notation of Benesh,

if you have a professional Choreographer friend who has copyrighted say for example Farah Khan or Ms Saroj.. than you would know it is been done and it is been registered everyday.
