Through an integrated approach to the study of anatomy, dance kinesiology, performance psychology and body conditioning students are introduced to strategies for systematically developing their movement potential. Goal setting, motivational strategies and mental skills practice are also used to facilitate optimal performance. Emphasis on structural, biomechanical and neuromuscular analyses of the body provides a basis for more efficient and effective approaches to dance technique training and to injury prevention. Students are introduced to benefits of ideo-kinetic and releasing principles to develop effective and efficient postural and dynamic alignment and a deep working knowledge of the body.
