AWE attendees will have a chance to learn the basic steps of a popular partner dance directly from life-size holograms of dance instructors.
Today we are excited to announce that we are premiering a life-size immersive dance lesson experience at the 9th annual AWE (Augmented World Expo) conference in Santa Clara, May 30 – Jun 1.
The experience is titled The World’s First Dance Lesson in Augmented Reality. It features life-size holograms of dance instructors which interact with guests to teach the steps of a popular style of social dance.
The installation will be part of the AWE Playground, a 20,000 square foot exhibit packed with daring, first-of-their-kind, augmented and virtual reality experiences. The Playground is accessible to conference and expo attendees on May 31 and June 1, 2018.
While Dance Reality has already helped thousands of people worldwide learn to dance from their smartphones, this is the first ever immersive dance lesson that is full-sized and doesn’t require holding a device in your hands. This is an opportunity for us to showcase our upcoming product offerings, which will give everyone the option to practice dance with life-size instructors, from their homes.
“We are thrilled to team up with AWE to bring this first-of-its-kind experience” says our co-founder Bee. “Our goal is to bring the classroom into your space, so you can receive instruction anytime and anyplace. We’ve known that people are reluctant to take dance classes because they are too self-conscious, too busy, or are convinced they can’t learn quickly. Now you can practice at your own pace, whenever and wherever you are. I’m so excited that so many people are enthusiastic about the possibilities of immersive learning. I can’t wait to see everyone try our newest experience first-hand at AWE.”
Today we are also announcing that we will be releasing a new feature which we call adaptive learning. Future versions of our products will interact with the student to tailor his/her lessons based on progress. Adaptive learning makes the experience more akin to a private lesson than to a group class. AWE attendees will be able to try this feature hands on at the AWE Playground exhibit.
We plan to make these new products available in the fall. We have not determined pricing yet but we expect it to be significantly lower than group classes offered at traditional dance studios. To request early access, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
