Some systems to write choreographic scores do exist ... they are much more 
sophisticated than stick figures! I have no idea if there is any software to 
typeset them ... probably not, it is a rather specialised field. In practice, 
ever since video cameras became affordable for a rehearsal room, a fixed shot 
covering the whole stage has been the usual way to learn and document dance.

Written scores mostly date from earlier than that, though there are exceptions.
