To make it possible for the deaf and hard of hearing to enjoy to appreciate the performance of tap dancers, we developed a system called “Karada Tap”, which transfers the haptic sensation of Tap Dance from the stage to the audience seats in collaboration with a tap dance unit and a science museum. This system was used in a public performance and we confirmed that the system could provide the sense of rhythm to the deaf and hard-of-hearing audience so that we could help the tap dancers to share the fun of dance to the audience with disabilities.
