Have you ever thought about the mathematics of classical ballet? Yes, these are the things I think about when I'm watching my daughter's ballet classes and performances. I talk about them with her and I think it's awesome that she can see math in ballet now too!
So this weekend my daughter had her final recital for the year. I couldn't help but ponder how much mathematics has gone into her training this year. She dances at a very technical school. I watched and was amazed at the abilities of these students. The amount of mathematics that goes into the highest level of ballet is incredible when you really stop to think about it.
Next time you go to the ballet, see what math you can find as you watch!
