DNCE 86 CONDITION AND CORRECT: BODY ALIGNMENT

3 Units - 2.5 hours lecture, 1.5 hours lab
Transfers: CSU, UC
Applies movement science concepts to various exercises from dance, conditioning, and body therapy programs (e.g. yoga, Pilates, massage, Alexander Technique) for dancers and non-dancers. It focuses on the awareness of posture and movement habits as related to anatomy, wellness and the reduction of the potential of pain and injury. Students start to retrain the body by learning proper warm-up and exercise set-up. Emphasis is on selecting effective and safe joint motions while maintaining alignment to gain the most benefit from each exercise. Flexibility, strength, posture, balance, coordination, endurance, relaxation and movement memory are enhanced as a result. Students are limited to taking four conditioning courses (DNCE 50, 86, 87, 88, 90, 91, or 92) for a maximum of 12 units. NR
