ABSTRACT

This paper explores researches and their meanings of creativity in dance studies of South Korea, drawing on literature reviews and meta-analysis. Thirty-five studies of creativity, published in journals listed in Korea Citation Index, are categorized into eight topics: concepts and elements of creativity; development of the examination of dance creativity; creativity improvement through dance education and activity; application of philosophical or educational theories of creativity into dance; general discussion of educational values of dance and creativity improvement; relation between dance educators’ teaching methods and learners’ creativity; neuro-cognitive studies of dancers’ creativity; and sociological studies of creativity. Most of the researches discuss creativity in dance education, drawing on statistics and empirical data analysis. Neuro-cognitive or sociological approaches to creativity were done in the 2010s. Considering rapid changes of socio-cultural environments, it is necessary to develop new ways of revealing multiplicity of dance creativity and to improve rigid educational system of dance.
