Dancing with Circles

Wednesday, September 30 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

Join dancer, choreographer, mathematician, and math professor Karl Schaffer as we 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.

Materials needed:
• Several sheets of 8.5″ by 11″ printer paper
• 5′ by 5′ area in which to move (non-carpeted area preferred)
• A belt and two ordinary (long) socks

Karl Schaffer is a dancer, choreographer, mathematician, and math professor at De Anza College.
