ABSTRACT

This study brings forward the need for study of the elderly, the ultimate target for the school of dance to continuously pay close attention in terms of providing social education. Data analysis on the current status of dance lectures opened particularly for the elderly in seven different cities by regions and types revealed following implications. To begin with, review on regional distribution of dance lectures for the elderly did not disclose sufficient information to generalize where the dance lectures for the elderly stand. However, from the observation made on host institutions and the vigor of the industry, the essential basic elements in opening dance lectures, it can be concluded that collaborative improvement is imperative through mutual efforts. Next, lectures were categorized broadly into three different types; namely 'practical dance lectures,' 'dance-gymnastics lectures,' and 'Korean dance lectures.' Practical dance lectures amongst all were identified as the industry leader the most diversified presence. In addition, it is considered crucial to make efforts in creating lectures in connection with 'creative dance,' taking into account of the participants' dance career, their level of interest, and the lecture's degree of difficulty.
