About Us

The Historical Movement Archive is dedicated to the research, analysis, and preservation of previously unavailable movement knowledge, and to making that knowledge available to researchers, teachers, historians, and movement artists around the world. This broad range of movement knowledge will include historical martial arts, historical dance, historical training principles, cultural dance, and movement traditions.

The Historical Movement Archive is dedicated to the preservation of cultural performance traditions. This broad range of performance traditions will include classical music in performance, classical opera, classical theater, classical ballet, classical dance, and cultural performance traditions.


Movement Personified through 3D Development

The Historical Movement Archive International Research and Training Program is the collective endeavor of an international group of historical movement scholars, teachers, and performers who are working together to preserve their life’s work in historical and cultural movement art forms, using state-of-the-art motion capture technology, volumetric capture technology, interactive serious gaming platforms, and emerging 3D teaching, research, and live performance technologies. Here is the team that is making it all possible.
