Abstract:

Students enrolled in a dance kinesiology class were trained to administer a screening protocol on younger dancers in the same department. The dance kinesiology students gained experience assessing alignment and functional symmetry in their peers, and then recommended exercises for gaining awareness and developing balanced patterns of movement. This "low stakes" assessment created both dialogue and peer support centered on helping the screened dancers understand and effectively work with their individual capacities and limitations. The project was designed to contribute to a culture of wellness and education within the dance department.
