A series of comparative studies were made through the body composition test, basic physical strength test and cardiopulmonary function test. The following results were obtained:First, in the body composition, body mass and %body mass of Korean dancers were lower, and fat free mass and muscle mass of Korean dancers were higher than those of university students.Second, in the basic physical strength test, right grip strength of university student was attentively higher than Korean dancers(p<.05). Back strength(p<.001) and balance(p<.05) of Korean dancers were attentively higher than university student.Third, there were no significant difference in HRmax, but recovery values of Korean dancers were fast. VEmax and VO2max of Korean dancers were attentively high(p<.05).The result presented above indicate that Korean dancers have possibility of improving body composition, basic physical strength and cardiopulmonary function.
