The same dance can give different impressions depending on the way the dancers convey their own emotions and personality through their interpretation of the dance. Beginner dancers who are teaching themselves often search for dance videos online that match their own personality in order to practice and mimic them, but it is not easy to find a dance that suits their own personality and skill level. In this work, we examined hip-hop dance to determine whether it is possible to identify one’s own dance from skeleton information acquired by Kinect and whether it is possible to mechanically extract information representing the individuality of dance. Experimental results showed that rich experienced dancers could distinguish their own dances by only skeleton information, and it was also possible to distinguish from averaged skeletal information. Furthermore, we generated features from the skeletal information of dance and clarified that individual dance can be distinguished accurately by machine learning.
