Module 2 Post 5 (The Dance Class)

I found this last site and it was really helpful because it included lots of pictures and a video at the end with all the positions of ballet. I wish I found this site sooner because it was filled with info on different types of math involved in ballet and there are a lot. The site said that ballet is based off perfect angles and shapes and that dancers must have perfect balance and harmony,

Module One Post Eight (Dance Related to Math)

http://mathrelationstodance.blogspot.ca/

This website talks about angles, musicality, and balance in dance. Dancers must know how high to lift their leg, this is determined in degrees. Their legs are lifted at 45 degrees, 90 degrees and higher. Dancers must also know how to transfer their weight in order to maintain balance. Dancers must also have the ability to memorize movements and counts, as well as on what counts to perform. This site also gives great explanations as to why they think these forms of math are useful to dancers.

This site was useful because not only did it have good information, it also gave great explanations as to why they think these forms of math are useful to dancers. This site also explained angles which was helpful since other sites didn’t give much information on it.

This site is very similar to

https://maddywoolwine.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/the-mathematical-reasoning-behind-dance/

 

These two sites have multiple ways math is in ballet. These 2 sites also explain why they think this form of math is useful to a dancer. This site talks about musicality, balance, and angles. The dancer must understand how to transfer their weight or else they’ll lose their balance. They must also know 90 degrees and 45 degrees or higher because when a dancer lifts their leg they must know when to stop or else they will go to high.

 

This was useful because now I can gather more information on geometry symmetry and counting. This site also explained angles which was very helpful. Now I understand how to keep my balance properly and why my dance teachers always say that we have to count.

Module 1 Post 6 (The Geometry In Dance)

This site talks about the angles in dance. However it doesn’t really talk about ballet but it was still useful. This site says that it is important to keep yourself symmetrical in dance and that our bodies form many different angles while doing certain steps. Symmetry is important for balancing in the world of dance so every dancer should maintain their symmetry.

 

This site was useful because now I know how important symmetry is in ballet and if I ever need to stay balanced in ballet I know it’s because of the symmetry. This site is also useful because if I want to swerve away from ballet and learn more about the dance in general I have this site.
