Abstract

This paper presents a virtual rap dancer that is able to dance to the beat of music coming in from music recordings, beats obtained from music, voice or other input through a microphone, motion beats detected in the video stream of a human dancer, or motions detected from a dance mat. The rap dancer’s moves are generated from a lexicon that was derived manually from the analysis of the video clips of rap songs performed by various rappers. The system allows for adaptation of the moves in the lexicon on the basis of style parameters. The rap dancer invites a user to dance along with the music.
