This combined lecture and movement laboratory course explores anatomical, physiological, and kinesiological aspects of human movement. We will cover skeletal and muscular anatomy, muscle physiology, skeletal alignment, and biomechanical force production. Principles of postural control, body conditioning, and injury prevention will be learned through interactive exercises and will be applied to dance and other forms of exercise. Students will leave with an enhanced understanding of movement efficiency and the ability to adjust movement patterns for better health and performance throughout their lives.
