General Course Information and Notes
Students study the science of movement as it relates to the specific needs of the dancer. Units of instruction may include, but are not limited to, the introduction to kinesiology with the understanding of the body (anatomy and physiology), through personal fitness conditioning (emphasis on yoga, Pilates), fitness concepts and techniques, cardiorespiratory endurance training and nutrition. Public performances may serve as a resource for specific instructional goals. Students may be expected to attend one or more performances outside the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom. Students in this class may need to obtain (e.g., borrow, purchase) appropriate footwear and/or dance attire from an outside source.
