Abstract

Social partner dances, particularly Argentine tango with its close embrace, present challenges to interactive dance system development. First, the system must address the motion capture problem of multiple closely interacting bodies. Secondly, the system deployment should not disrupt the social dance conventions and expectations. Thirdly, the system must capture movement features relevant to the dance style. This paper presents and reflects upon the process of building such a system for interactive Argentine tango dance, in which dancers' movements drive a real-time composition system, illuminating solutions to these limitations.
