Art & Dance

Art + Dance = wonderful math. How is this possible? Well, Florian Nicolle has the answer. This project links the interesting and complicated break dance with art, and (to your surprise, I hope) to mathematics.

The truth is that we use a lot of math concepts in dance moves, even if we know or don’t know. A lot of things from symmetries, rotations and also combinatorics and much more. Florian Nicolle decided to take just some break dance moves and represent them into a 3D way ( a 3 axes system) and also used some of the nice angle principles when the moves have some rotation involved. And all this just by drawing. Enjoy.

Wonderful moves, wonderful art and wonderful math.
