Forces and Motion, Science and Dance

How are Dance and Science Standards connected? What can Dance teach us about Science? How can movement help students understand, explain, and remember Science concepts? This residency makes clear connections between dance and science principles like force, motion, gravity, energy, push, pull, mass, and weight. Students investigate and illustrate invisible forces through movement.
