Science Cafe Feburary: Physics and Ballroom Dancing

Physics and Ballroom Dancing with Speaker: Davon Ferrara, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Physics, Belmont University

What happens when you bring an understanding of physics into sports? Researchers and trainers are able to utilize tools that measure the movements, forces, and energy of a modern athlete to help analyze and improve the athlete’s performance. Not only does it help the athlete improve performance, but understanding the underlying physics behind sports movements can also aid in injury prevention. While professional athletes often use sophisticated and expensive equipment to analyze their movements, similar analysis can be done with retail cameras or even a smartphone.


Free Admission and Open to the Public.
