Recording of Dancing with Circles with Karl Schaffer

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

Appropriate for all ages.

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.
