  "description": "<p>In this paper, we describe an ongoing work towards developing a&nbsp;whole-body interaction interface for exploring different&nbsp;visualizations of movement, using real-time motion capture and 3D&nbsp;models, to apply in dance learning and improvisation within a&nbsp;creative, gamified context. A full inertial motion capture system is&nbsp;used by the performer while a simple user interface provides the&nbsp;option to the user to experiment with different avatars, and&nbsp;visualizations e.g., trace of motions on different parts of the body&nbsp;and to interact with virtual objects. The 3D simulation provides a&nbsp;real-time visual feedback for the movement. The interaction&nbsp;follows the paradigm of moving from mimicking kinetic material&nbsp;into a self-reflection teaching approach. The interactive avatar is&nbsp;the reflection of the performer, but on the same time the avatar&nbsp;depicts a character, a dance partner which can inspire the user who&nbsp;moves to explore different ways of moving. Either within the&nbsp;framework of artistic experimentation and creativity, or in the&nbsp;context of education, the visual metaphors of movement shape and&nbsp;qualities consist a powerful tool and raise many scientific and&nbsp;research questions.</p>",
