The purpose of this study is to analyze Korean dance culture facing mass society based on Dodnald Dodson’s article Differentiating Popular Culture and Mass Culture. According to him, what differentiate popular from mass is the influence and power of businessman and the money. In case of popular culture,businessman stays in distance from artists and public while they conduct direct communication. In mass culture, contrastively, businessman becomes decision maker who controls all details. In this type of culture, artists hardly obtain their creative autonomy. Based on this idea, we differentiate two representative trends in Korean dance culture, ‘community dance projects’ and TV show Dancing 9 ,dealing with their public audiences. Through the article, we examine how participants of each culture communicate each other in order to suggest community dance projects as popular culture and Dancing 9 as mass culture. This study could be standard idea toward popularity when choreographers and dancers seek for communication with public.
