Abstract:

  • This research approach focuses on sharing 3D animation data over the Web and creating a system capable of animating virtual ballet performances. Sharing motion data on the Internet allows anyone to access various artistic dances all over the world. In addition to this, these motion data can be applied in online systems for educational and artistic purposes. I present Web3D Dance Composer, which enables the creation and editing of classical ballet animation based on VRML. This system allows anyone to easily create and simulate artistic ballet performances as well as realistic stage effects. Since it is important for classical ballet to provide an artistic harmony from both dance choreography and stage&scenario effects, this system can be useful for teachers and choreographers to simulate their performance in advance. This system also allows artists opportunities and possibilities to express their feelings.
