Calling all swing dancers: it’s time to get physical – scientifically, that is. To celebrate National Science Week, Savoy Dance and science communicator Giselle Dreyer have put together a science-themed dance workshop and social.
We’ll host a 90 minute masterclass, exploring inertia, tension and momentum in dance, before putting our skills to work on the social dance floor. The lesson will use 6 count lindy hop, send outs, pass bys and returns, so be most appropriate for beginners and upwards.
Come long to learn some Newtonian physics, improve your technique, and have a scientifically splendid time at Savoy Dance’s National Science Week social.
Note: Giselle Dreyer is a science communicator from the Australian National University. This event will be held as part of their Masters research project. Participants will be asked to sign consent forms and fill in questionnaires regarding basic demographic information and attitudes towards science. Further information and a link to the consent form will be provided closer to the date, and will be made available at the event. For any questions or concerns, please contact Giselle Dreyer.
