Developing Aerobic Dance Routines: A Method for Instructing Undergraduate Group Fitness Leaders
Dail, Teresa; Melton, Deana
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v80 n7 p23-28, 41 Sep 2009
Group exercise leader certifications often include a written, as well as a practical, component. In order to prepare candidates for certification, some organizations offer workshops before the examination. However, candidates are expected to have prior experience in leading group exercise. Undergraduate fitness leadership classes can be an excellent venue for the preparation of persons who wish to be certified. This article suggests a methodology for teachers who prepare students as fitness leaders and focuses on strategies that can be used to improve students' knowledge of music structure and their ability to assemble multiple moves into aerobic dance routines. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
