In this research, Movement Notation (Laban) and Traditional Method in Folk dance Teaching were compared in terms of learning success. Movement notation group (n = 14) and Traditional group (n = 14) consisting of students from the S.U. State Conservatory Turkish Folk Dance Department were formed. During the 14-week-long study, the symbols of the Movement Notation (Laban) have been taught by exemplifying motifs in Turkish Folk Dances. Groups were formed by neutral assignment and "post-test control group model" was used. In the analysis of the data, parametric analysis and descriptive statistics were applied in solving sub problems. The learning achievements of the students in the Movement Notation (Laban) and the traditional group were compared both in terms of individual and group averages. It was determined that both the individual and group learning success of the Movement Notation Group (Laban) in the direction of the findings were higher than in the Traditional Learning Group (P<0.05).
