We present in this paper an automated dance evaluation method based on dynamic time warping and Laban movement analysis. Our method can evaluate pose similarity, timing accuracy and stylistic quality. We validated our methodology using 400 dance fragments with varying proficiency levels, and achieved 97% accuracy.
