A UC Santa Cruz study found that dancers can improve the ability to do complex moves by walking through them slowly and encoding the movement with a cue through ‘marking’.
Researcher Edward Warburton, a former professional ballet dancer, and colleagues (including a UC Irvine collaborator) were interested in exploring the “thinking behind the doing of dance.”
Their findings suggest that marking may alleviate the conflict between the cognitive and physical aspects of dance practice and allow dancers to memorize and repeat steps more fluidly. As Warburton describes:

Marking could be strategically used by teachers and choreographers to enhance memory and integration of multiple aspects of a piece precisely at those times when dancers are working to master the most demanding material.

It’s possible that this area of research can extend to other kinds of activities, like language acquisition. Stay tuned!

A really interesting line of research. We often think of something like dance as mainly being a physical activity, but it requires extreme cognitive control and focus.

Unlike in other countries, street art is pretty much accepted as being part of the urban ecosystem in Brazil - While some murals celebrate the World Cup while others deride greedy World Cup organizers.

Mesmerizing mosaic. Something is so entrancing about stained glass. We’re inspired to add it to a front door or bathroom window. Vintage stained glass can be repurposed outdoors for unique and unexpected patio decor.
