The Dance Database website

You can visit our Digital Dance Database following this link.

The Digital Dance project aims to create a publicly accessible digital archive of folk, modern and contemporary dances that does not only include video recordings, commonly used to document dance performances. In addition to rare video material held by local cultural institutions, state-of-the-art motion capture technologies are utilized to record and archive high quality motion data of expert dancers performing these dances. Apart from the goal of preserving this intangible cultural heritage by digitizing it (mainly the folk dances), the project is interested in increasing the awareness of the local community to its dance heritage. To achieve this a 3D video game for children is developed to teach these folk dances to the younger generations.
