This study explores the effect of self-directed flow on dance competition participants. For this purpose, this study creates a self-directed flow program. It consists of three stages.
First, as a perception for a goal setting, dancers participating a dance competition have a goal, and then it has an effect in reaching the flow state. This study figures out that dancers in the flow achieved more with less stress, so felt more satisfied. Second, as a control stage for practice focuses on alleviating the anxiety and tension of dancers through self-directed flow program, which specifically emphasized the attention training skills. This program helps them focus on anything they are working on. Third, as a performance for evaluation, participants in the self-directed program express their satisfaction with successful performances. Furthermore, they maintain confidence without losing concentration even if they experience mistakes while performing.
