I am currently working on my dissertation @NYU:

"An Analysis of Simonson Technique via Effort-Shape Movement Analysis"

I was originally planning on using coding sheets via Excel or a statistical program such as SPSS to track the effort frequency and range as viewed in video-taped classes of the technique @ Dance Space, NYC.  However, after attending "Dancing with the Mouse", I was introduced to the possibility of more advanced computer programs formulated specifically for E/S.  (And once Buff Brennan's cd-rom is out you know I will use that!)
But until then, any suggestions?

Thanks so much!
