UNCC prof relishes expansion of dance education

In the 17th century, gentlemen used dance as a means of physical conditioning to improve their fencing, horse-riding and hunting prowess. In the 20th century, sweaty-palmed boys and girls do-si-doe’d in gym class to learn the social graces doled out by annual units of square dancing. In the 21st century, molecular biologists hire dancers to perform as atoms for demonstrations in lecture halls on the behavior of the basic building blocks of matter.
