You could do something like Which type of dance shoe prevents slipping best (bear foot, dance paws/ foot undeez, jazz shoes, tap shoes, ballet shoes, pointe shoes, etc.)? Or maybe How does the temp in the room affect a dancer's heart rate? Or What makes your heart rate go up the most (moving exercise, immobile exercise, dance, singing, watching a suspenseful movie, fear, etc)? I hope this helps! Yeah I've been doing some looking as well!

When I did a dance-themed science project for school, my project went like this:

When I tap dance, I can do 64 taps in a minute using Shirly Temples, and I can do 67 taps in a minute using Paradiddles. If I added 15, how many could I do, if I added 30 how many could I do, and on and on.

I won first prize, and I made it all the way to state.

Does the tempo or beat of a music make a difference on the effect of a person's mood? The dance steps?

You could do what shoes are the most slippery, how much strength dancers need to do a certain move.  Or what muscles tighten or loosen,or why flexibility is an important part of dance.

Pretty much anything can be turned into a science project. Your question/hypothesis will determine the project... There may be no previously thought of dance science projects but what about anything you can measure.... You'll have to interview. What is the average time from soft shoe to toes (ballet)? Or; Does ballet, tap, or jazz dance increase/sustain a persons heart rate the fastest/longest?  Forgive me... I'm thinking out loud so you'll need to pick a topic/question that suits you. Which dance movement requires the most endurance? ETC.

Good Luck! Your Science teacher should help you. Just tell 'em what interests you.

Well, you could really do anything involving dance. You could see how much liquid a dancer takes in...
