Dance is a performance art form comprising of a sequence of
movements to a rhythm or beat. It is a part many cultural
heritages and has been done for generations. Dances and dance
movements are often taught by one person to another but
learning all the movements can be difficult and one cannot
remember it all. Over the years, dancers have found ways to
record dance movements to recall later, some of these methods include hand-written notes, annotation, like Labanotation and
Benesh Movement notation and other digital resources
such as dance videos and images.
With the growth of technology in society, came its integration with dance and the development of different dance tools. There have been tools developed for annotating dance movements, capturing and analysing movements as well as some archival systems for storing dance movements. From the systems explored, there is a lack of resources purely devoted to annotating, storing and querying multimedia dance content specifically for latin dance styles.
Develop a mobile dance application that documents Latin dance based on user annotations and a system to allow users to search dance content. It is intended for dancers or users of the application to be able to retrieve dance content enabling a recall in order to perform the dance move retrieved, through searching annotations and other keywords with the help of query expansion techniques.
