What Do You Get When You Mix Dance, Darwin and Birds?

Fall leaves I had a great night out recently when I went to see a ballet choreographed by one of the women I interviewed for "Beyond the Boys' Club", Professor Nicky Clayton of the University of Cambridge, at Sadler's Wells. The performance mixes modern ballet with Darwinian ideas of natural selection and her groundbreaking research on the cognition of jaybirds. Sound interesting? The show was amazing and if you are interested in seeing how she mixes her professional and personal passions of science and dance, check out a short video about her work at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_MnwNyX0Ds
