The aim of the study was to identify the features of the pedagogical context in choreography and dance technique classes which could be viewed as the basis for developing a suitable web-based ICT application to support teaching and learning in practical dance classes. The sample consisted of teachers from four dance academies in the Netherlands. Data about the pedagogy was gathered using a questionnaire and an interview. The results showed that there are similar patterns in applying reflection in terms of content, methods and frequency, and that students encounter difficulties with reflection activities in both choreography and technique classes. Therefore, an appropriate ICT tool for practical dance classes should focus on facilitating the pedagogy of students' reflection. (Contains 1 table.)
