this almost makes me wanna go back to grad school

again from jezebel, this youtube video showing interpretive dance in action!:

… the “Dance Your Ph.D” contest, an annual challenge designed to give scientists the chance to express their thesis work through dance. This year’s winners have just been announced, and include Sue Lynn Lau, a graduate student at the University of Sydney, Australia, who designed a routine as a representation of her thesis, “The role of Vitamin D in beta-cell function.” The synopsis given on Lau’s entry: “Every PhD begins in the dark, but it takes only a few bright sparks to kindle the flame of discovery.” The contest is a pretty rad way to combine science and the arts, and is an incredibly creative way to share one’s academic work without using any words at all.
