Have you ever wanted to better understand the deepest questions about the universe? Are you a fan of physics or classical dance? If you’re interested in the relationship between art, science, and nature, then you should attend the upcoming lecture-demonstration at the Tang Teaching Museum entitled “Time Travels in Physics and Dance.”
Expand Your Horizon with a Former NYCB Dancer and a Physicist
Co-presented by Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) and the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, “Time Travels in Physics and Dance” is a free talk and demonstration featuring former New York City Ballet dancer Emily Coates and CERN particle physicist Sarah Demers.
On Tuesday, July 9, at 6:00pm, Coates and Demers will deliver an open reading of their co-authored book Physics and Dance at the Tang Teaching Museum. The event will also include interactive demonstrations.
This engaging lecture-demonstration will introduce audience members to the fundamentals of classical dance and physics and explain how a dialogue between art and science can enrich one’s appreciation of both. No prior knowledge is required.
In a press release by SPAC, Coates said, “I have many fond memories of my summers in Saratoga, performing at SPAC with New York City Ballet. I could not have imagined then that I would write a book with a particle physicist. The life of artists-and scientists!-can take many beautiful twists and turns. Sarah and I are delighted to share our collaboration with the Saratoga arts community.”
“Time Travels in Physics and Dance” is free to attend, but reservations are required.
