The student takes theory and technique courses on Pilates apparatus taught by Pilates certified specialists and learns methods to determine appropriate conditioning programs for people of all ages and physical conditions.
To prepare the student for employment, instruction uses both classroom work with a variety of instructional methods (lecture, lab/demonstration, independent and group projects), and internship experiences in dance and fitness facilities.
