ABSTRACT

The evaluation of the exercise intensity of five different types of modern ballroom dance sport and the effects of long-term modern ballroom dance sport lesson on the changes of cardiopulmonary function were performed, and eventually the baseline data for the modern ballroom dance training program were offered. Twelve male and female college students who majored in dance sport and belonged to dance sport clubs were designated to the trial group. The effects of 10-week dance lesson on various physiological parameters and endurance properties were evaluated with a portable gas analyzer and some devices for blood analysis on the trial group. In a 5-minute dance sport performance, mean values of exercise intensity were 56.9±12.4% of VO2max and 70.7±8.8% of HRmax. Among those 5 types of modern ballroom dance sport, exercise intensity was high in Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot in a corresponding order. The mean value of exercise intensity, 56.9±12.4% of VO2max, in all tested types of modern ballroom dance sport can be interpreted as that the modern ballroom dance sport may used as medium intensity exercise for the improvement of endurance capacity for health and physical fitness. However, it is imperative that the training programs made in consideration of the physical fitness of each subjects should be adjusted case by case since there are non-negligible differences in exercise intensity between five types of dance sport studied.
