The Dot Dot Dot app combines dance, music and interactive features to represent the physical flow of dance on a tablet screen. Dot Dot Dot can be viewed in three different ways, all controlled by your fingers: swipe vertically or horizontally, and your dance experience changes. Using the app from the birds-eye view, think of it as a streamlined Dance Dance Revolution, with the dancer moving as you touch the dots. From other vantage points, the dots transform into columns, breaking down the dancer’s movement. A vertical swipe takes you to another dance, seen from the corner of a stage.
