The Dance Science Lab is the only specialist dance lab in Korea. By adopting a scientific management system for a scientific dance education, the Lab aims to help students improve their health and dance skills through physical fitness management, diagnosis of dance kinesiology, prevention of dance injuries, analysis of movement, and rehabilitation. The Lab provides systematic tests and measurements by adopting the following three types of scientific management system to develop specialists through practice-based education.
Dancing is based on physical activities using our bodies. The Dance Therapy Lab operates an injury management system for students through close cooperation with the Dance Science Lab to support the diagnosis of physical condition, analysis of dance movement, injury prevention and rehabilitation. Moreover, the Lab runs programs to prescribe exercises for efficient dance activities and improve students’ learning capabilities. This is what differentiates it from other education institutes as a specialized dance education institute. Dancers here constantly strive for perfection rather than the status quo. As a result, they frequently suffer from fatigue, injuries or chronic pain from straining themselves in movement. Such physical imbalance adds pressure to certain parts of the body, which can lead to problems in certain joints, ligaments and muscles. While it is important to receive appropriate therapy for each injury, it must be preceded by preventive measures. In particular, it is necessary to provide an accurate assessment of each individual’s physical condition.link

This system is installed in the Dance Studio No. 105, and a high-definition camera records the dancers from three sides (front, side and back) on a real-time basis. Students can monitor their position, direction and motion lines on the screen immediately after their movements.
