To understand human body motion, one has to be able to identify different body parts. Because of the flexibility of the human body, numerous possible configurations are possible. The paper proposes a novel model based approach to label the outline of a human body. Based on the model, key features of the body can then be identified. In addition, we propose the use of the concept of support, a commonly used notion in dance representation. In our work, a support is defined as the structure on which the body rests. The experimental results of the proposed approach in labeling outlines are very encouraging
