Dance Conditioning is designed for beginner to advanced dancers. This course gives students tools they need to become more technically proficient dancers and movers. Elements of yoga, Pilates and floor barre, along with the use of exercise equipment are incorporated into the class. Students will gain the strength, flexibility and physical awareness necessary to take their own dancing or movement to the next level. They will develop and consistently apply healthy, efficient movement patterns that improve dance technique and help prevent injury. The course also includes a unit on anatomy to increase students’ understanding and ability to communicate specifically about muscles, bones and movement. Projects include working in partners to develop and teach stretch, warm-up and strengthening sequences as well as keeping a personal progress journal.
