DANC 5300 - Dance Kinesiology I


Introduces basic concepts of the study of the body through an overview of: the anatomy of breathing; the musculo-skeletal system; basic principles of kinesiology and their relationship to fitness training; the nature of stress and benefits of relaxation training. A somatic (body/mind) approach to the course materials draws on experiential activities to enhance conceptual and factually based materials. Explores skeletal alignment, muscular development and function, and mechanical efficiency in the production of dance movement.

Requisites:
Credit Hours: 3
Repeat/Retake Information: May be repeated for a maximum of 6.0 hours.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 2.0 lecture, 2.0 studio
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,PR,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to design and implement a personal training program specific to their physiologic needs.
  • Students will be able to identify movement at major joints and the muscle groups used to stabilize and mobilize at these joints.
  • Students will demonstrate understanding about the act of breathing in theory and practice.
  • Students will develop understanding of general training principles, develop ability to assess postural alignment and deviations and understand the application of kinesiological principles to the production of dance movement.
  • Students will know the components, attachments, actions of the skeletal, articular and muscular systems, the relationship of these components in the facilitation/restriction of movement.
  • Students will understand the nature of stress and identify the factors that influence their stress response and develop facility with stress management practices
