Project deliverable Open Access
Wood, Karen; Cisneros, Rosamaria
Dance brings together intellectual, emotional and physical intelligence and offers a unique opportunity to explore a range of ideas and questions. The art form lends itself to critical engagement and is a way which teachers, practitioners, artists, dancers and technologists can interact and exchange ideas. WhoLoDancE is a three-year EU-Funded Horizon 2020 Project that explores technology-based dance learning and whole body interactions. The project will use advanced capturing methods and transfer the data generated by a series of motions that can be blended and used within a variety of teaching contexts. This deliverable explores how dance, teaching and digital technologies interact and the themes that emerge. The report responds to a specific set of questions around movement principles. This document will focus on presenting research findings carried out primarily by the COVUNI team but will include work from other consortium partners such as ATHENA, Lynkeus, LCGW, K.Danse and STOCOS. The above-mentioned partners contributed in the recruiting of professional dancers and teachers and distributed and collected a number of questionnaires that were used for this deliverable. An examination of how dance, technology and movement principles align is the crux of this document and the data generated from this work, will directly feed into later parts of the project.
