Physics Center Stage
Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Portland Center for Performing Arts
Newmark Theatre
8–9:30 p.m.
Ballet dancers’ grace and beauty of movement is awe inspiring. Dancers have learned
how to use physics concepts such as force, impulse, inertia, and conservation of angular
momentum to perform artful jumps and turns that wow audiences.
Portland State University’s
Science Outreach Society
and the
Oregon Ballet Theatre
will define these concepts and demonstrate them through the vocabulary of ballet. The
show will include dance performances as well as ideas and demonstrations that you can
use in your classroom. The performance will feature results from motion capture analysis
of dancers taken at the Oregon Health & Science University.
– Kelsey Adams, Elizabeth Anderson, Elliot Mylott, Justin Dunlap, Lester Lampert,
and Ralf Widenhorn, Portland State University‘s Dept. of Physics and
Science Outreach Society
– Kenneth Laws, Dickinson College
– Anne Mueller and dancers from the Oregon Ballet Theatre
