We propose Lodge, a network capable of generating extremely long dance sequences conditioned on given music. We design Lodge as a two-stage coarse to fine diffusion architecture, and propose the characteristic dance primitives that possess significant expressiveness as intermediate representations between two diffusion models. The first stage Global diffusion focuses on comprehending the coarse-level music-dance correlation and production characteristic dance primitives. In contrast, the second-stage local diffusion parallelly generates detailed motion sequences under the guidance of the dance primitives and choreographic rules.In addition, we propose a Foot Refine Block to optimize the contact between the feet and the ground, enhancing the physical realism of the motion.Our approach can parallelly generate dance sequences of extremely long length, striking a balance between global choreographic patterns and local motion quality and expressiveness. Extensive experiments validate the efficacy of our algorithm.
