The mission of the Soma Center at Mason Gross is to provide quality, motion-specific training to dance majors so that they can crosstrain, learn how to ward off common dance injuries, maintain their conditioning while recovering from injuries, and heal at a faster rate when injured. The Soma Center offers members of the Mason Gross dance community opportunities to augment and enhance their technical and artistic growth through progressive attention to principles of movement integration, body-mind awareness, and neuromuscular education in a variety of movement contexts.
Students are able to access customized athletic and wellness training with the Dance Department’s certified athletic trainer; crosstrain on cardio, balance, and free-weight equipment to improve performance; and
train in Pilates under the supervision of certified instructors—with private, duet, and quartet Pilates apparatus sessions available. They may also draw upon the Soma Center as a resource while studying kinesiology, anatomy, Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and yoga.
The Soma Center is also the home of the Polestar Pilates Teacher Training Program, the first evidence-based comprehensive Pilates teacher training program to be offered in higher education that meets the standards of the Pilates Method Alliance.
