    Abstract

    This paper presents a virtual dancer that is able to dance to the beat of music coming in through the microphone and to motion beats detected in the video stream of a human dancer. In the current version its moves are generated from a lexicon that was derived manually from the analysis of the video clips of nine rap songs of different rappers. The system also allows for adaptation of the moves in the lexicon on the basis of style parameters.
