Dance Kinesiology and Applied Teaching Practice – Online Course
January 30 - April 23
The National Dance Education Organization’s (NDEO) OPDI program offers online dance education courses for dance teachers who are seeking professional development. Courses are appropriate for those teaching in all environments including dance studios, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and community settings. Our “online” dance education courses are guided by a professor and include a cohort of students (typically other dance teachers) with whom you will collaborate. This 12-week Kinesiology course was specifically created for dance teachers looking to better support their students! The course will give you a strong foundation in anatomy and kinesiology to help maximize performance and minimize potential injuries of your students. You’ll learn how to create environments to promote healthy approaches in the training of dancers which include: ➤ injury basics ➤ developmentally safe practices ➤ nutrition ➤ the creation of a medical support network As an educator it is important to clearly define the anatomical potential and limitations of individual dancers in order to maximize technical training and performance. This course will provide you with the confidence that you are using safe and effective training principles to minimize injury in your students. Tuition: $520 NDEO member / $595 non-member
