Physical Education, Dance & Health
While the Physical Education program emphasizes preparation for a teaching career, the program also helps qualify graduates for careers in fields such as special education, recreation, and athletic training. Students who wish to obtain an Associate Degree in Physical Education may do so by completing the course requirements described in the catalog.
Transfer students should consult the Counseling Office for major preparation and general education requirements of the particular transfer institution of their choice. Transfer students who want to also obtain an Associate Degree may do so by completing all WLAC general education requirements plus at least 18 units in the major as required by the transfer institution (a total of 60 units for an Associate Degree).
The WLAC Dance Showcase
Each semester, WLAC dance production students participate in a showcase held in the 500-seat Fine Arts Auditorium, complete with costumes and lighting. The showcase is directed by dance instructor Jane Roston. Roston has received prestigious awards, including the Ovation Award, for her choreography for stage and television projects.
