This course will introduce students to a method that will restore muscular balance and efficiency in movement. Body Balancing Technique is taught on mats and also on specialized equipment created to give variable resistance and support for muscular action. The technique emphasizing body alignment and breath work enables the dancer to direct the movement out from the physical center. During the course of studies, the student will work towards precisely executed, smooth, rhythmic movements. The technique improves alignment, balance, and control,and opens the body to its full range of motion and ease. Practiced regularly the technique aids in preventing muscle and soft tissue injury. Limited to eight students. Dance majors and students who have taken Anatomy for the Performer are given priority.
