Ballet Austin

Interpreting Contemporary Dance v2.0

This piece, Interpreting Contemporary Dance v2.0, takes the project Interpreting Contemporary Ballet a step further by designing and conducting an evaluation process that assesses its clarity and usefulness as an educational piece. Ballet Austin, with dance experts, assembled a variety of small focus groups to conduct an intensive evaluation process to identify strengths and weaknesses in the current iteration. The evaluation focuses on two interconnected aspects of the ICD design: content and viewer experience. Five different user types were observed and then interviewed about their experience using the ICD presentation. Successes, as well as suggestions for changes to the site, were noted.
