Dance and Expressive Movement promote thinking divergently and the ongoing generation of diverse motor actions. The creation of specific categories systems can be an useful tool for its observation and analysis. In this paper we present three studies based on three categories systems. These have been created by means of the observational methodology in a progressive way and ad hoc to these disciplines. The three studies are part of an institutional research of the AGAUR (INEFCP). The aim of the studies is to analyse the generation of motor answers, and the dimensions of the categories systems are created following three different viewpoints: one related to the phases of the creative process (Guildford, 1970); another related to the motor abilities described in the observational system of Motor Skills (OSMOS) (Castañer, Torrents, Dinušová, Anguera, 2008); and the dimensions of the natural contexts (Anguera, 2005) and specially (Laban 1988). The code has been carried out by means of the software Match Vision Studio (Perea, Ezpeleta, Castellano, 2004).
