Contribution of Dance Studies from the Point of View of Religious Dance Teachers in Formal Education
Perlshtein, Talia
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n9 p2100-2109 2016
This article examines perceptions of observant dance teachers on aspects related to their professional world. The study included 119 teachers, graduates of the dance department at an academic- religious college of education in Israel. The data was collected through a structure questionnaire developed specifically for the study and through interviews with teachers. The data shows that the predictor for the perception of the contribution of dance lessons to pupils is the interrelations between dance and the inner world. The significance of these interrelations arises, among other things, in the finding that the teachers' choice of instruction of the art of dance allows them to realize themselves and mold a new path in the instruction of dance within a religious worldview, as part of an education system compatible with their own worldview.
