April 8, 2023 | DanceNerd Lecture Series – Physics and Dance 2 with Dr. David Nesbitt and Chris Harris
Join Dr. David Nesbitt and science nerd CCD faculty Chris Harris to discuss more Physics and Dance! Let’s talk about how momentum can get you off the floor, how torque helps you turn, and just how we can use physics to appear to defy gravity for an instant. The understanding of how physics works on the body is integral to the understanding of balance, locomotion, and the effort needed for great dancing!
Join us at the Colorado Conservatory of Dance for this event.
