Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Ohio University College of Fine Arts

Minor code ORDNCS

The dance minor in somatic studies considers the bodily kinesthetic knowledge that dancers develop in the course of their study of movement. Students perform physical activities and analyze movement practices from a variety of somatic theory perspectives and learn through both theory and practice. Study in this minor augments degree work in psychology, prephysical therapy, exercise physiology, recreational therapy, and physical education. Concentrated study in the somatic studies minor helps prepare for employment or graduate study in dance therapy, clinical psychology, physical therapy, dance kinesiology, and recreational therapy. To become a dance minor in somatic studies you must have sophomore standing, a 3.0 GPA in your major discipline or field of study, and come to the School of Dance to meet with an advisor. No audition is required.
