Choreography is a creative art of defining sequences of movement. The choreographing process benefits a lot from the use of digital applications. In this study, we investigate the effects of different interactive techniques on user experience for a choreography generator interface. We develop a virtual reality-based and an augmented reality-based interface and compare them with 1) a personal computer-based choreography generator interface and 2) a touch-based mobile application for choreography generation. We evaluate user performance and user experience on the interfaces in terms of task completion time, as well as subjective criteria, like mental stress, physical stress, and pleasure. Our research contributes to the study of how different interaction methods of the same application affect user experience. This research also contributes to the study of virtual and augmented reality in education and training applications. The results verify the effectiveness of augmented reality in developing training and design applications, particularly choreography. The augmented reality interface emerged as the preferred choice for users. Furthermore, the results demonstrate the effectiveness of natural user interaction approaches in interface design.
