Dancing by Numbers

Mathematics, like dancing, is profound, fundamental, and essential to the human experience. But how are these two practices intertwined? What do they have to offer each other? How is the system of mathematical ideas indirectly rooted in our physical experience?

We do many things with numbers: calculate, construct algorithms, discover patterns, and even create confusion, but where do the laws of arithmetic come from? What is the nature of mathematical ideas? How is our language affected by the world of numbers? How can the analysis of mathematical ideas influence a choreographic practice... or do choreographic ideas influence mathematical thinking?
