Dance Movement Instruction: Effects on Spatial Awareness in Visually Impaired Elementary Students.
Chin, D. I.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v82 n5 p188-92 May 1988
Dance movement instruction was shown to enhance spatial awareness in 16 visually impaired elementary students. Initiating such instruction early in life might be beneficial in treating movement inhibitions. Large-muscle and cardiovascular activities in physical education programs are complemented by the positioning, sequencing, movement, and transition skills conveyed in dance instruction. (Author/VW)
