The article theoretically grounds the technology of the formation of future choreographers’ information and communication competence. The author emphasizes the fact that the result of the formation of future choreographers’ information and communication competence in the professional training process is the developed competence for this type of activity. The article has defined the essence of the concept of "the future choreographer’s information and communication competence" as an ability to work individually or collectively, using tools, resources, processes and systems, those are responsible for accessing and evaluating the information (information and data) obtained through any media resources, and to use these information for solving problems, communication, creating informed solutions, products and systems, as well as for gaining new knowledge. The benefit of the study is that the conceptual basis of the developed technology of the future choreographers’ information and communication competence formation is defined by systemic, personality-oriented and activity approaches. The author has also noted that, substantiating and developing the technology, the following stages of its implementation are identified: motivational, cognitive and technological. All three stages of the developed technology are aimed at the formation of the future choreographers’ information and communication competence, and the substantiation of all structural components of this competence (motivational, cognitive-operational, evaluative-reflexive). Moreover, during the process of future choreographers’ vocational training for a professional activity by the means of information and communication technologies, the author also has specified the criteria (motivational, cognitive-informational, operational-activity, reflexive-productive) and identified the indicators for specified criteria (a professional orientation, an interest in the future profession, understanding the importance and need to master the profession of future choreographer; a positive attitude towards the ICT use in future professional activities; a desire to master ICT; a desire to apply ICT in future professional activities; an understanding of the role of information and prospects of ICT using in choreography; knowledge of basic concepts related to ICT; a digital literacy; an ability to adequately assess their own ICT activities; the development of professional activity, the content of which is decisive and non-standard actions, a direction onto self-improvement), and levels of forming the future choreographers’ information and communication competence (high, medium, low).
