Dancing with Circles

September 30 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Recurring (see all)

One event on September 30, 2020 at 6:30 pm

Suggested Ages: 4 to 14+, Adult Friendly


Join dancer, choreographer, mathematician, and math professor Karl Schaffer to play with several surprising ways of exploring circles — and their properties — using our bodies. This interactive session will explore whole-body circular activities easily done in a very small space. Apply these actions to create movement sequences with the ultimate mathematical prop — an ordinary sheet of paper. Then, learn how it all connects to the curious algebra of quaternions.

No dance experience necessary. Presented by the Museum of Math.
