From Discover Magazine: http://discovermagazine.com/2008/the-body/11-the-physicist-who-figured-out-ballet
This is a great article about a physicist’s love and study of ballet. It provides a look at the physics of the human body, and how using physics to analyze art does not deconstruct the art, and how using art to explain and exemplify physics principles doesn’t diminish the science. The article itself is also a great piece of writing, with the writer beautifully conveying the love and excitement physicist Ken Laws has for both Ballet and Physics, and how he has been able to combine both his loves.
