Music is very scientific. AI can read BPM and adapt types of choreographies towards the demographics and preferences of the audience by the analysis of their facial expressions and attention spam of their visuals.
Choreographers will need to create more sequences to be analyzed by the AI software and hardware but the choreographies can be developed in a better way by AI.

I think there is a tiny chance that robots could help with performances. Yet, choreography can be a mostly creative thing for any performance.
