ABSTRACT

This study examined the effect of dance education on self-respect of “soldiers who need intensive care.” Samples were limited to 20 persons working at military units located in Yeonchon area, Gyeonggi-do. Test groups of 10 persons were surveyed in the before-and-after method after 12-weeks dance class, and control group was not manipulated. The measuring tool was composed of 5 Likert scale measuring self-respect, and high total score meant high self-respect. SPSS 21 was employed to analyze data. The results were as follows. Firstly, in test group, overall score of self-respect items including sub-factors was significantly raised up in comparison with before and after dance education. Secondly, in control group, score of two sub-factor of it was reduced and other factors of the group was somewhat raised up. However, in overall self-respect, there was a little reduction despite insignificance. In conclusion, we confirmed that dance education was profitable to soldiers in need.
