Title:The Process of a Choreographer: A New Way to View Dance | Steven Butler | TEDxPasadena

Visual storyteller, Steven Butler, makes his living as a dancer, producer, and an artist, but what encompasses all of these passions is choreography. “I hate to break it to you, but you’re kinda watching dance all wrong. I know that you would look at me and tell me how much you love dance and love watching dancers, but what you really mean is ‘I love watching people be a spectacle for my enjoyment.’ I call this: Audience Entitlement...and I would like to suggest a new way to view dance.” Watch as Steven walks the audience through the creative process he uses to choreograph, delving into tone, style, and “synesthesia;” all to encourage a deeper look at the intent behind each piece of choreography we see. Steven Butler is a multi-talented creative with an open mind, passion for storytelling, and aptitude for intersecting multiple art forms. He harbors the stage presence, confidence, and spatial awareness of a dancer; the storytelling ability of a seasoned writer and filmmaker; and the social responsibility of an informed artist. He received a Bachelor of Arts in film from ArtCenter College of Design. Complementing his choreography and film work, Steven serves as the Media Coordinator for Designmatters, the ArtCenter’s Social Innovation department. By intersecting his creative passions and vast practical experience in varying artistic fields, Steven aims to use art as a means of storytelling that both engages and inspires viewers and participants, while simultaneously shaping a progressive and culturally relevant narrative. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
