The Physics of Dance

By Kenneth Law As philosopher Suzanne Langer put it: "In watching a dance, you do not see what is physically before you — people running around or twisting their bodies; what you see is a display of interacting forces... But these forces... are not the physical forces of the dancer's muscles... The forces we seem to perceive most directly and convincingly are created for our perception; and they exist only for it."
