Font creators and typography experts Typotheque have fused type and art with an interactive app for both the iPhone and iPad called Dance Writer. The Dance Writer app contains elegant model Valentina Scaglia, who performs every letter in the alphabet through choreographed dance.

The footage is from the interactive installation at Experimenta Lisbon in 2009. With the footage from the event, Typotheque teamed up with programmers Resolume to allow people to share their own words and messages to friends in the world of dance. The Dance Writer app is only $2.99 and is perfect for any lover of typography and dance.

Try out the Dance Writer on your iPhone and iPad and see if your friends can decode the danced messages you send them.
