Abstract: The government course guideline was revised in 2012 with significant change in physical education. Dance has become compulsory after the revision. It has been reported that there are many teachers feeling anxious about teaching dance. What is needed is to develop a learning method which supports teachers who are anxious about teaching dance and helps students to achieve the goal in learning dance. We thought that we might be able to support learning dance by turning students’ dance movement into CG by using Motion Capture. Therefore, in this research we tried to utilize Motion Capture and CG for group dance assuming that this is going to be used in physical education class. As the result, we think that using CG for dance class can help the students to realize their own personal goal in dancing, lead them to learn with each other, and support teachers who are not confident in giving an instruction.
