A dance to the music of spacetime

With lateral thinking worthy of the great man himself, British scientists have hit upon a new way of explaining the intricacies of Einstein's theory of relativity: dancing.

What an exciting idea!!! This article is right up my alley! I'm currently researching mathdance, a way to present mathematic principles/theory through movement. For those of you interested in Einstein and dance, you might also find www.mathdance.org a great resource . Karl Schaffer, Erik Stern, and Scott Kim founded mathdance and they are now performing as an ensemble (they will even be at the Kennedy Center this year!).

When I was a junior high/high school student, math and physical science were always my least favorite subjects. To be honest, I dreaded those classes. Now I realize that the subjects themselves are fascinating but the way in which they were presented was all wrong for a visual/kinesthetic oriented learner like myself.
How many of us out there would've learned more and enjoyed ourselves had we learned math or science through experiential activities or performances?

I hope to hear more about the Einstein project in the future, and I also hope that people are beginning to appreciate the relationship that the arts and sciences (and math) can have! :D

I think as I grow older and become more curious and interested in questions of mortality and what comes next, I find physics and science increasingly interesting for what it can explain and for what it can't explain.
