Generative Art is a creative approach that has found applications in several artistic disciplines. In some of these disciplines, formalization has historically played an important role, which predisposes them for employing generative methods. In dance, the relationship to Generative Art is less obvious and the role of formalization is more contested than in other disciplines. This paper tries to contribute to an understanding of the specific role that Generative Art currently plays in dance. It does so by proposing a taxonomy of topics that cover both common and dance specific aspects of Generative Art. This taxonomy is used for comparing a wide diversity of generative works that have been created in the context of dance.
