Division: Fine Arts, Comm, and New Media

Department: Dance

Course: DANC 1410

Title: Tai Chi I

Description: This course introduces students to the basic movements of Tai Chi in order to better understand how the integration of body, mind, and spirit benefits the practitioner. Tai Chi is a valuable cross training exercise for students of all abilities, as it facilitates deep stretches, relaxed strength, whole body coordination, balance, centered alignment, weight shifting, and moving with fluid grace. It improves the coordination and integration of left and right and upper and lower halves of the body; and the extremities of the body, with the inside core. On a more subtle level, Tai Chi unifies body and mind. Movements are paired with conscious breathing. Multiple cognitive and emotional components ? including focused attention, visualization, and intention lead to greater self-awareness and a sense of peace. Repeatable for credit. This class is cross-listed as PE 1410.
