Enhancing Dance Literacy: Dance Notation Through Touch Technology

Development of a software program for touch-technology tablets such as the iPad that would allow for scholarly dance notation.

This project’s principal activity is to create a dance notation editing program implementing touch technology. The project will result in the development and release of a freeware tablet application that innovates upon existing Labanotation software to develop a program that will significantly change the way dance and movement teachers, scholars, and professionals document, read, write, share, and utilize this notation in teaching, research, and public projects. This technology will enable users to engage with the notation on a high level of detail, while allowing them the portability of bringing it directly into the studio or into the research field. The beneficiaries of this project are researchers, scholars, teachers, choreographers, dancers, and students in fields such as dance, theater, and performance studies who use movement as an integral part of their scholarly inquiry. The expected results are the creation of an iPad application that can be used in educational settings.
