Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v24 n2 p6-9 Nov-Dec 2010
This article presents ideas and views of educators regarding the role of dance in the secondary physical education program. One educator believes that dance education is an excellent complement to the traditional physical education program at the secondary level. Another educator defines physical education as the "art and science of human movements." This includes several strands, namely (1) fitness-health-wellness; (2) sport; (3) social; and (4) cultural.
