This paper aims at the annotation of movement phrases in Vietnamese folk dance videos that were mainly gathered, stored and used in teaching at art schools and in preserving cultural intangible heritages (performed by different famous folk dance masters). We propose a framework of automatic movement phrase annotation, in which the motion vectors are used as movement phrase features. Movement phrase classification can be carried out, based on dancer’s trajectories. A deep investigation of Vietnamese folk dance gives an idea of using optical flow as movement phrase features in movement phrase detection and classification. For the richness and usefulness in annotation of Vietnamese folk dance, a lookup table of movement phrase descriptions is defined. In initial experiments, a sample movement phrase dataset is built up to train k-NN classification model. Experiments have shown the effectiveness of the proposed framework of automatic movement phrase annotation with classification accuracy at least 88%.
