Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE WAS PREVIOUSLY OFFERED BY WELLNESS AND SPORTS SCIENCE IN THE EDUCATION DIVISION AND EMPHASIZED THE ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH DANCE AS PHYSICAL EXERCISE AND TRAINING.  IT IS NOW OFFERED IN THE HUMANITIES DIVISION WITH GREATER CONTENT IN THE ANALYTICAL ASPECTS OF DANCE AS AN ART FORM.  THE COURSE HAS BEEN INCREASED FROM 1 CREDIT TO 2 DUE TO ADDED CONTENT THAT ALLOWS FOR EXPLORATION OF THE PRINCIPLES OF DANCE WHICH APPLY TO OTHER STYLES AND PREPARATION FOR PURSUING FURTHER STUDY IN DANCE HISTORY AND CHOREOGRAPHY.
