The Computer as a Tool in Dance Research

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  07 March 2019


In this article I will present how computers are used in dance research at Rådet for folkemusikk og folkedans, Sekretariatet (RffS) (The Centre of the Norwegian Council for Folk Music and Folk Dance) at the University of Trondheim.
