Abstract: Participants found a variety of pathways through Dancing with the Mouse, a conference sponsored by The National Dance Association of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and co-directed by Joanne (Jodi) Lunt and Keitha Manning. Dance concerts, technique classes, visits to local schools, as well as numerous sessions on dance and technology comprised the many conference activities. Our conference choices reflected a shared interest in understanding how the dance community currently uses technology, at least as shown at this conference, and in formulating some useful questions about the impact of technology on dance practices. Lisa Naugle (LN) comes to this process as a leading member of the fast-growing dance and technology community and an invited conference presenter. Her research interests include investigation of online methods for choreography, plus the use of motion capture and digital image processing in dance performance. Ann Dils (AD), a dance historian who writes about web-based performance and virtual dance, attended the conference as part of her research.
