This power point presentation talked about several different forms of math in general, but once again I just focused on the symmetry portion of it. The power point basically explained that dancers need to be very symmetrical.Often, formations in a dance create reflection or rotational symmetry. Also when dancing with a partner, dancers often use both reflection and rotational symmetry. It also explained that dancers are constantly moving their bodies across the stage so that it reflects the same consistent pattern.
