Dances for an Expanding Universe

Moving MattersKC - Harlan Brownlee

Spinning planets, streaking comets, and shooting stars comprise this astronomical adventure that will propel students into orbit! This participatory workshop integrates dance with the characteristics and movement patterns of the planets and sun in our solar system. Learn ways to help students apply and demonstrate their understanding of the gravitational force that keeps planets and moons in orbit by creating dance sequences based on objects in the solar system. You'll enjoy this unique choreography experience!


Please wear comfortable clothing for movement!
