The OED definition of "choreography" and related terms seem only to
refer to dance.  Nothing about gymnastics, figure skating, or even more
distantly related activities like staging a fight in a movie.

"The rules to the competition are pretty straightforward: 1) find a
piece of music that was either written by Bix Beiderbecke or that
includes Bix as one of the musicians, and 2) choreograph a juggling
routine to the music."

"Stevens, 35, is a quiet man, who would rather choreograph a fight scene
than be interviewed."

"In films, the Chitwoods choreograph their own stunts although the
director naturally has final say-so."

"But a director is essential -- to pull together the whole, to revise
positions, choreograph the camera work, adjust lighting, even make
certain a door slams loud enough or a bell rings at the exact moment it
is needed."
