This chapter explores the transformation from dance to digital data in a series of research projects that explored the role software might play in the context of contemporary dance creation. The chapter looks at two aspects of these projects. The first involves descriptions of collaboration between people with software knowledge and people with dance knowledge. The second relates to what dance becoming data might mean considering advances in computer technology and questions that should not to be ignored when digitising dance. However, the conclusion affirms the positive value of creative collaborative approaches to exploring connections between dance and digital data.
