Dancers are the Athletes of God

«Dance is about time, and symmetry in space» Dance is everywhere, life rhythms , biological patterns, cycles, Heart beats, music …everything is in motion, the Dance is a magnificent expression of the intangible essence and nature of the Universe.

“We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”

― Albert Einstein

To understand that Dance is everywhere we need to be familiar with some concepts like Quantum and Synchronicity:

Quantum physics is the set of physical laws governing the realm of the ultra-small. There, objects appear to follow rules that are radically different from the world seen by the naked eye. In the quantum dominion, for example, an object can seem to be in two places at the same time, and there is no distinction between particles and waves.

Synchronization: What’s synchronization? Imagine an individual — a bird, a pendulum — doing a particular motion over and over again. The bird is flapping its wings as it flies, the pendulum is swinging back and forth. Imagine several such individuals near each other, all doing the same motion — several birds flying together in a flock, several pendulums swinging while hanging from a beam. When they start out, the birds are flapping to their own individual rhythms, the pendulums going in different directions. But then something beautiful happens: these individual motions synchronize. The birds flap in perfect coordination, so the flock moves as one marvelous whole. The pendulums swing in harmony.

Physics and the Art of Dance: Understanding Movement , Kenneth Laws , Oxford U. Press, New York, 2002. $39.95 (236 pp.). ISBN 0-19-514482-1 Buy at Amazon What do Maxwell’s equations and Fokine’s Les Sylphides have in common? Both are towering and seminal achievements—and almost completely unfamiliar outside their respective areas. Both have beauty that is generally inaccessible without knowledge of their language and tradition. Each is couched in a precise vocabulary. Few people outside the fields know that vocabulary, and even fewer are familiar with the vocabularies of both. Kenneth Laws is evidently one of those few. He has written a most unusual book, Physics and the Art of Dance: Understanding Movement, to bridge the gap between the two worlds.
