This course provides students with a strong foundation in the Pilates method. Practiced regularly Pilates improves alignment, balance, and control, opens the body to its full range of motion and ease, and aids in preventing muscle and soft tissue injury. The technique emphasizes body alignment and breath work, enabling the dancer, actor, or athlete to direct the movement out from the physical center. Students will work towards precisely executed, smooth, rhythmic movements, using a series of exercises that will help them restore muscular balance, develop dynamic core strength and increase flexibility. Mats and specialized equipment give variable resistance and support for muscular action.Limited to eight students. Dance majors and students who have taken Anatomy for the Performer are given priority.
