Some artists or authors spend almost a lifetime on one work. Some crank out masterpieces in no time. Productivity varies for sure.

Considering that a choreography of a dance is surely a work of art, it would seem that it would take a lot of time to "complete" not to mention the attendant issues of needing a company of dancers to set the work upon (or whatever the correct jargon is).

This would seem to indicate that choreographers are constrained in their output.

Here are some things I have been thinking about:

Who were to most prolific choreographers? Are there any great choreographers who only did a few masterpieces, and little else? Do choreographers collaborate or perfer to work alone? Where do choreographers "come" from... former dancers?
