Math and Dance

I have a friend who is getting her doctorate in dance. I asked her if she knew of any intersection between math and dance. She dug up this link to Mathdance. There are a couple of professors that have written a series of instructional dance activities to teach math concepts. Pretty wild. I can't ever imagine leading my students in a ensemble dance of irrational numbers. Maybe I should. I went looking for inspiration on Youtube and found the Dance of Parallel Lines...



and some kind of wild trig dance...

Found this looking for things during a google search. I'm an artist who integrates percussive dance (rhythm making in the feet) with elementary math topics. You might be interested in my website www.mathinyourfeet.com or my new blog www.mathinyourfeet.blogspot.com (Title: The Map is Not the Territory"). All the best, Malke
