With our STEAM theme, we wanted to move beyond our previous exploration of art to include STEM and the performing arts. How do some dancers appear to violate the “laws of physics”? (See three sites with such claims of the impossible: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-magic-of-pilobolus/; http://www.alisonchase.org/ and <https://www.alltop.com/viral/world-of-dance-competitor-defies-the-laws-of-physics-video>). Thus, we are delighted to invite you to explore such physics concepts as: Centripetal Force, Kinetic and Potential Energy, Newton's Second Law, Newton's Third Law, Projectile Motion, Velocity, Center of Balance, and Biomechanics in the context of dancing. For example, visit: https://sites.google.com/site/thephysicsofdancing/dancing-with-the-physics/newton-s-second-law; http://slideplayer.com/slide/9796803/; and Professor Ken Laws’, Dickinson College, books on Physics and Dance. The famous dance group Pilobolus actually runs workshops on Physics and Dance (check this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y38bUumNak). Also, how might you engage your students in understanding complex relationships in ecology through dance?
