Human Biology and Movement - 20001

Knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems is important to dancers, helping them understand how the bones, muscles and joints work together to produce movement and how the heart and lungs cooperate to provide energy for continued movement. Students in these connected courses will relate theory and application: dancers will learn how to improve technique, form and stamina; biology students will find dynamic applications for their understanding of anatomy and physiology.
