The software tool developed here allows a real dancer to generates, through his movements and in real time, the creation of a virtual dancer with which he can interact.

The virtual dancer created by the final program has three main influences to improvize movement : the database he can chose his moves from, the real performer's movements and the choreographer's suggestions.

The first influence is the database's one : the possibilities of movements are limited by the number and style of movements kept in the database.

Secondly, the virtual dancer responds to the real dancer. The 3D Live Motion Data is collected in real time from the sensors and sent to the program.

And finally, the virtual dancer can be influenced by the choreographer. At this point, the user interface enables him to choose a point in space that the virtual dancer will try to reach.
