Summary This project investigates strategies dancers can use to effectively learn and remember choreography so that they will be more likely to perform it correctly in the future. The first part of this project introduces and tests the effects of new strategies designed to improve dancers' abilities to cluster movements and organize events together in ways that might make choreography easier to remember. The second part of this project extends these findings by making some redesign recommendations for the Nintendo Wii's Just Dance video game. Both goals have the potential to augment usability, increase customer satisfaction, and maximize the potential health benefits related to learning how to dance.
