Recognition of dancer in video is a tough
mission because of its complicated backgrounds,
illuminations and variations in the dancer costume. The
purpose of this article is to identify dancer in a video. In
this work we identify the dancer from videos through
movement analysis. The dance movement consists of
primary movements and that motion analysis is required
to detect these components. These motions should be
synchronized with dance steps. This paper uses
morphological operations such as erosion and dilation
for detection and segmentation of dancer. In
Background subtraction model adaptive frame
difference method is used for foreground detection.
Keywords : Erosion, Dilation, Adaptive Frame Difference Method, Motion Analysis.
