Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
Zapin Lenga is a Malaysian folk dance within Zapin Melayu and specifically known as Zapin Johor. Zapin Lenga was originated in Muar, one of the district in Johor state and the oldest Zapin Melayu repertoire that had been found in Johor. Zapin Lenga which usually performed for religious significance comprises of six-step patterns, known as ‘langkah’ that were performed only by the males during the olden days. In the meaning of preservation, we have used Motion Capture (MoCap) technology in recording and digitising human motions. In this paper, we present a primary work in preserving the dance movements of Zapin Lenga through Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) including Body, Effort, Shape and Space in order to identify qualities on dance movements. The dance movements were analysed by considering musical rhythm using segmentation method and the distances between markers were measured to define speed.
