A group of dancers and choreographers from around the world are taking a new approach to developing their craft, using data analytics and social media tools to analyze how their dances have evolved in the past few years.
They call it the Beauty Revolution, and they’ve created a data science platform to track their dance trends, using the data to develop a unique way of analyzing how their choreography has evolved.
“We are going to be using analytics and tools to track the evolution of our dances, and I would say in the next couple of years, that will be the key to the future of dance,” said Nika Fong, the lead dancer and choreographer of The Art of Dance, which is part of the Dance Academy Network.
Fong’s choreography includes more than 300 choreographies from around Asia and the Middle East, which she says have become more intricate and complex since 2014.
Fong has been watching her dance evolution closely, and says she has been able to identify some of the biggest trends in her work.
“You can see it on Instagram and YouTube, it’s all over the place.
I have noticed a lot of changes,” she said.
Fongs said she has found that people who have danced before have developed their dance moves in a more “traditional” way, while younger people, who were only in the art of dance a few years ago, are more likely to start dancing with new techniques.
“The younger generation, it has been so ingrained into them.
I think they’re looking for more freedom,” Fong said.
The dance academy network is part.org, which aims to bring the arts to people in need.
The founders of the dance academy have invested in the network to help artists find new ways to connect with the people in their communities.
“When we started The Art Of Dance, it was really about bringing together the artists who have come before, and now we’re bringing them together again,” said co-founder and chief executive officer, Jennifer Gomes.
“It’s been a fantastic partnership, but also an incredible challenge, because we have to be honest that there are not a lot that are being taught,” she added.
“A lot of the art forms have grown to an age where they are no longer able to communicate with people in the arts community.
They are no more able to teach us about the art, but we are doing that.”
While there are now a number of dance academies and community centers across the country, there is still a lot more to learn.
In New York City, The Art Academy of New York, or AAMNY, is the largest dance academy in the city.
“In the United States, there are no schools or universities that teach dance,” Fongs said.
“So for the next decade, it is going to require a lot to build the capacity of the arts and education system.”
Fong said that when it comes to finding new ways of learning, she is always looking to new things to learn, and is also looking for ways to teach her work that are not in the curriculum.FONG said she is trying to figure out how to make her choreography more accessible to people who may not be as well-versed in dance as she is.
“There are still a couple of pieces of the puzzle that are really hard to figure.
We want to be able to be part of a community that will educate people about dance and arts and create spaces for dancers and people who want to learn more about it, not just dance,” she explained.
