New DNB Extension Homepage -- and Motif Man!

I just learned two things:

  • The Dance Notation Bureau Extension at Ohio State University has a new and improved homepage: http://dance.osu.edu/dnbext

  • ...and the DNB Extension site includes a fun instructional application called Motif Man, where you can create a short motif score and then watch a stick figure perform it. (My favorite of Motif Man's animated actions is "approach" -- can't help but giggle.) If you're not familiar with motif description, there's an intro to it here (click Motif Description Basics).

Gus and I love Motif Man! Esp. approach and retreat. And meander. And cartwheel. They're all great!
