Applied Anatomy for Human Movement
Focuses on physical sciences that relate to human movement and emphasizes functional anatomy. Topics include skeletal structure, physics of dance, muscular balance, and improving movement potential.
DNCE BC 2562
An introduction to the theories and methods of movement analysis, focusing on its application to dance performance and research. Through lectures, readings, integrative movement exercises, and observation labs, students will learn to analyze and describe the qualitative aspects of human movement; to notate movement in motif writing; and to refine their ability to move efficiently and expressively.
