MetadataShow full item record
Children naturally use movement to express themselves. Dancing and movement is not only a means of self-expression, but cultural expression as well. In students of all ages, dancing can improve physical coordination, fitness, and fine motor skills. In addition to the physical benefits of dancing, the psychological benefits include increased sense of self-awareness, improved social skills, and an opportunity to exercise creativity. This research explores the various factors that influence and define dance education. The study was conducted on eight adolescent students currently enrolled in studio dance lessons. Survey questions focused on three major factors influencing dance education, and how those factors interact to create a positive or negative experience for dancers.
Dance -- Study and teaching.
Dance -- Psychological aspects.
