Abstract

This paper describes the development and use of the BALLONES system, which links dance and computers in a form that can be readily used by dancers. The system accepts a subset of the French terminology used by classical ballet dancers and choreographers to describe their dance sequences. It produces computer-controlled animations of the sequences, which can be displayed at any speed, from any point of view, in any level of detail. Applications include the recording of choreographic works, an aid for teachers of classical ballet, and a source for the study of human movement.
