Future Dance. Virtual Reality Dance. Apps & VR Technology

Hello Salseros and Bachateros (well dancers in general) Today I bring you a Post that looks to the Future. How new technologies and virtual reality can make us a dance star.

Virtual reality. The future ⏰

It must be made clear that all these tools are aimed at TEACHING, and not interaction (for that the traditional reality is much better XD ), but there are some so powerful that in the future can make someone prefer to stay at home. Tip: Don’t do it!

It must be said that these virtual reality dance or vr dance tools are also designed to play sports in a fun way in our own home. 😅 🏠

TOP 3. App DANCE REALITY:🥉 

This is undoubtedly the most powerful and developed app in the market. This app shows us the dance steps of salsa, bachata, Hip Hop, etec.

The app uses our mobile camera and puts in front of us a high quality 3D instructor. This teaches us the different steps in an intuitive and simple way. In addition, if we focus our feet with the camera, it marks us where we should move them with fingerprints.

Its creators are two salsa teachers from Seattle who also became programmers (apparently there are people who instead of 24 have 48 hours a day).

They realized the difficulties that people had to learn to dance for different reasons (they had no dance partner, they were ashamed to expose themselves to the public, etec …) so they developed this application that allows us to learn to dance in the ballroom our house.

By the way, if you don’t have a dance partner, here we offer you our social network for dancers, where you can meet people, create groups and send messages.

It is an application with a linear teaching method, that is, if you do not exceed one level, you cannot access another.

It is in any case an application that is worth trying and takes up little

Advantages ✅Disadvantages ❌

3D quality is quite good

His teaching method. It makes people who already know the basic steps get bored at first

It is very easy and intuitive

Offers a variety of well-organized dances and steps

This virtual computer game use on Oculus + LeapMotion technology, which makes us interact with our computer. It is basically a “mouse” with two controllers (one in each hand) with virtual reality glasses, an incredible set from my point of view.

This technology allows us to get the most out of our computer in every way. It introduces us to another atmosphere…

So the game is very simple, it is to learn in front of our computer imitating the steps of our virtual instructor.

It must be said that 3d quality should improve, but that in the future it will be something to consider

3d graphics should improve

He is the only one (at the moment) that offers Latin dances in virtual reality

TOP 1. Dance Central (Oculus Quest)🥇

Here comes my favourite game. Dance Central is the best quality game on the market. In its latest update of 2019, we can appreciate the great quality of its graphics and 3D.

Supported again with Oculus quest technology, the game takes place directly on the dance floor of a virtual disco. There you interact with the different characters offering them dance challenges.

In these dance challenges you have to imitate with the movements of your body the steps of the avatar. The musical genres are different, Hip, Hop, Pop, Urban, but have not yet developed Latin dance genres. I am sure they will develop in the future and it will revolutionize the market.

Here you have the Oculus quest Set. Once you have the Oculus Set you can download the game (€ 30)

But this is not a simple learning game, in the multiplatform mode you can challenge your real friends from a distance (or in the same place in your home, although that with this technology makes no sense. You can also break some bookshelf in the room or hit each other) 

The game has 32 songs with its choreographies with different difficulties. Then you can download more from the Web.

This game is very similar to Just Dance Oculus Rift, (here I leave the link to the game), but honestly it seems to me this much better. Here I leave you the Link to Just Dance VR

With these two vr dance games, you can stay dancing in vr the entire day. 😆 

Conclusions and opinion: 😏

It is clear that technology, such as apps or virtual reality, will help us learn to dance, at least the basic steps and aspects of each dance.

Everything also depends on the dance style…

For Individual Dances, these technologies can help us to improve our dance movements.

For Latin dances (couple) they can teach us the basic steps and not very complex figures.

Of course there is also the option of simply exercising in a fun way.

But for the Latin dancers, I would like to say that the dance is a social act, it is a game of human beings for human beings. Knowing how to dance is not simply knowing how to move, it is also understanding and empathizing with your dance partner through looks and touch, all under to the rhythm of live music that makes our body vibrate.

This only occurs in natural reality.

So:

Technology to learn to dance, ✅  👍

Technology for doing sport, ✅  👍

Technology to dance alone, ❌ 👎
