You all know that I love a good dance/science combo. I've been obsessed with the Dance Your PhD contest for a while now, and I think it's time more people got in on the fun. For someone like me, who loves research and performance equally, there couldn't be a better competition. It's exactly what it sounds like: Doctoral students studying science collaborate with dancers to explain their PhD research with movement. Amazing!
Check out the finalists for this year's contest and vote for your favorite. I particularly like the biology one (below) featuring an antibody/bacteria face off, and the social science one using traditional and contemporary gestures and Indian dance to open dialogue around girls' health.
