Dance Injuries and Prevention

Dance Injuries and Prevention

Students will engage in the examination and exploration of dance movement focusing on anatomical and kinesiological knowledge. The purpose of this study is to establish good practices for technical work in dance, and for analysis in conjunction with teaching and injury care. To support this investigation, students will be introduced to current issues and theories regarding body structure, alignment, flexibility, muscular strength, conditioning practices, and neuromuscular functioning. Drawing on this knowledge, students will learn to recognize the causes of dance injuries, and to develop strategies for the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of dance injuries.
