The main focus of Math in Your Feet is a thorough exploration of patterns. Since my dance form is based in making foot-based dance patterns, it is a natural and meaningful connection, especially if the goal is to develop mathematical thinking and not simply working to improve skills or memorization of procedures or formulas. After patterns, another commonality between math and dance is certain habits of mind and flexibility of spirit in the process of finding solutions. With that in mind, I submit to you two diagrams, one from a math point of view, the other from an arts perspective.
When I look at this diagram from the blog Keeping Mathematics Simple each one of the intersecting circles could describe what I do as a dancer including, I think, even the theoretical.
