AbstractThis research looks at dance training and its effects on Self-concept and Self-perception. In is a literature review with proposed research methodology. By analyzing forms of dance training in different dance environments we can determine which methods allow for healthy development of self. This research focuses of the argument regarding dance as a sport and physical activity. Using Symbolic Interaction Theory this research looks at how the specific interactions of the individuals in the differing environments affect their development of self. Since there are many genres of dance, individual interactions in the dance realm can be highly varied which could relate to the development of self. Knowing physical activity does lead to positive self-perception, it is necessary to determine how the different environments can affect the final outcome so that instructors and mentors can develop effective methods of teaching.
