Welcome to the LACC Kinesiology, Health, and Dance Department
The faculty and staff of the LACC Kinesiology, Health, and Dance (formerly Physical Education) Department are excited about beginning a new era of health and fitness, from our brand new state-of-the-art Kinesiology building. We teach Kinesiology and Health classes out of the Kinesiology building.
The former Women’s Physical Education building has been renovated and is the home of our Dance Program and other Kinesiology classes.
Remember, taking a dance class will fulfill your Kinesiology requirement for graduation!
