Dance Education in Korea
Byeon, Jae-Kyung
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v83 n1 p27-31 Jan 2012
Despite a structured physical education system and related policies, dance education in Korea largely exists as a course in name only, without achieving its unique goals. It lacks standards within the physical education curriculum, which indicates that dance education is not conducted properly. Thus, the content and level of dance education vary from school to school and depend heavily on each teacher's educational background. This article discusses the history of Korean dance education and how it must change in accordance with the seventh national curriculum, which focuses on creativity education. (Contains 1 table.)
