The Dance Dots were invented to help students understand their dance formations within class and performance pieces.  The system creates consistency from the teaching space to the performance space so dancers are able to feel more comfortable when it is time to present what they have learned to an audience.


The Dance Dots is a retrieval cue system for choreography, formations, and classroom procedures.


Retrieval cues are pieces of information that help us recall memories stored in our brains. They serve as triggers or prompts that activate associations with the information we're trying to remember. These cues can be anything from words, smells, sounds, images, or even emotions that were present at the time the memory was encoded.

Retrieval cues work to enhance memory by reinstating the context in which the memory was initially formed. When we encounter a retrieval cue that is linked to a specific memory, it activates related neural pathways, making it easier for us to access and retrieve that memory. This phenomenon is known as the encoding specificity principle. Essentially, the more retrieval cues we have that are associated with a memory, the more likely we are to recall it successfully. Retrieval cues not only aid in retrieving information but also play a crucial role in consolidating memories and strengthening the connections between related pieces of information in our brain, ultimately enhancing our overall memory recall abilities.
