Agnes (No chance) says
It's really unlikely for this job to be replaced by robots. Most important in choreography is that it needs sense to create story or just doesn't look stupid. We'd need an AI that can be creative, is ready to use creates some moves on purpose, knows what move will fit in a fraction of music and can communicate with dancers.

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.
