Goh Ballet and Nextech AR Create Ballet Holograms to Improve Broader Access and Introduce New Ways to Learn Dance
Nextech AR is collaborating with Goh Ballet Academy Canada utilizing holographic technology to provide a series of new interactive dance experiences for the community.
In a partnership that connects the Arts with technology, the two organizations have co-created a set of holograms that capture Goh Ballet in a multi-sensory experience, which includes its teaching approach and its legacy through founders Mr. Choo Chiat Goh and Mrs. Lin Yee Goh’s own personal words. Developed on Nextech AR’s AiR Show, an AR performance platform for entertainment, arts and culture, these augmented reality experiences can simply be opened by scanning a QR code or entering an access code on the app.
“As human beings in an ever-evolving world there is a need to find innovative ways to connect, inspire and create shareable moments.” said Chan Hon Goh, Director of Goh Ballet. “Nextech AR’s digital human holograms broadcast rich immersive moments from Goh Ballet to anyone in the world with a smart phone. We have chosen to partner with Nextech because of the ease of use and realism of their AR experiences.”
The holograms capture Chan Hon Goh’s masterful technical instruction and artistic expression, as she imparts her wisdom as a Prima Ballerina with The National Ballet of Canada, and teacher. When released, the holograms will provide access to virtual ballet experiences accessed from the academy’s website and social media as well as enhancing studio walk-through tours at Goh Ballet’s locations in Vancouver and Toronto.
