Thank you for sharing this with us.
I am anxiously awaiting a response from someone with knowledge or experience in Math Dance. I enjoy math and I am always looking for that kinesthetic connection for my students to help them grasp the concept. However, I am a terrible dancer, and I hope I don't have trouble making the connection myself.

I recently came across some "whole-body math and movement activities" and I wonder if anyone has tried them with adults, or with kids.
The book is Math Dance by Schaffer, Stern and Kim (2001)
THere is a little news story and video clip at http://www.sciencedaily.com/videos/2008/0503-do_the_math_dance.htm
Anybody have any knowledge or experience with this kind of thing?
