I don't know if you are aware of John Simmonds at George Mason
University. He has been working on a computerized dance program called
Project Adele. I actually saw it used in collaboration with a live
dancer in performance, but it has the potential for other applications.

John can be reached at GMU. His phone is 703/993-8793. I don't have his
email or web site addresses handy.
