Scientific partners: Motek (Amsterdam-Holland), InfoMus (Genoa) and Politecnico of Milano (Italy), Peachnote (Germany), Athena RC (Athens, Greece), University of Coventry (United Kingdom). Artistic partners: K. Danse (Toulouse, France), Instituto Stocos (Madrid, Spain), Lykeion Hellinidon (Athens, Greece).

Presentation of technological prototypes dedicated to the annotation and fine analysis of kinesthetic and qualitative aspects of movement in dance, the use of a similarity search software in order to identify similar patterns of movement, the blending of choreographic sequences taken from a large repertory of 3D high quality motion capture movements.

The user dialogues with a 3D avatar which allows him/her to apprehend the totality of his/her physical capacities, qualities of movement and the virtual space he/she is moving in. this project covers several dance genres: Ballet, contemporary dance, Flamenco and traditional Greek dances.
