Overview

Course Description
This course will provide students with the theoretical knowledge and practical application of skills, gymnastics and dance. Emphasis will be upon the student demonstrating performance skills, strategies and understanding how to analyze the biomechanical, physiological, psychological, technical and tactical aspects of both sports.
Course Content

Physical Attributes

  1. The student will demonstrate theoretical knowledge and practical application of:
  • flexibility
  • strength
  • power
  • endurance

Motor Attributes

  1. The student will demonstrate theoretical knowledge and practical application of:
  • balance
  • spatial orientation, including inversion, rotation, height, flight
  • agility

Biomechanical Principles

  1. The student will demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of the biomechanical principles involved in:
  • gymnastics
  • dance

Safety Techniques

  1. The student will demonstrate theoretical knowledge and practical application of:
  • handling and setting equipment
  • spotting and supporting techniques
  • warm-up and cool down
  • safety procedures in gymnastics
  • flexibility

Analysis of Fundamental Skills of Gymnastics and Dance

The student will demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of:

  1. Analyzing basic creative, folk and ballroom dance.
  2. How to analyze:
  • landings
  • locomotions
  • rotations
  • static positions
  • swings
  • springs

Analysis of the More Competitive Aspects of Gymnastics and Dance

The student will:

  1. Demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of analysing the relationship between aesthetics and skilled performance
  2. Demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of analysing form in the evaluation of individual performance in gymnastics and dance
  3. Demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of analysing physiological aspects related to performance in gymnastics and dance
  4. Demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of analysing physiological factors related to performance in gymnastics and dance

Planning

  1. The student will demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge of:
  • space utilization
  • time utilization
  • flow
  • stages of learning
  • progressions
  • feedback

Pedagogical Principles

The student will:

  1. Demonstrate a knowledge of the conceptual approach to instruction
  2. Demonstrate a knowledge of discovery/problem solving methodologies
  3. Demonstrate a knowledge of appropriate skills progressions
  4. Demonstrate a knowledge of tactical progressions
  5. Demonstrate a knowledge of the design of drills
Methods Of Instruction

The course will be divided between lectures, demonstrations and practical application (practice).

Lectures: These will deal with most of the theoretical aspects of the course. Audio-visual materials may be used.

Practical Application: Starting with the basic and using appropriate teaching points and demonstrations, students will learn various skills of both performance and analysis.  Under the guidance and supervision of the instructor, students will practice and refine individual and group skills and analysis techniques.  Safety will be stressed at all times.
