The research subjects were divided into 48 Korean dancers, 56 ballerinas, and 56 practical dancers according to their majors, and 96 dancers for leisure and 64 professional dancers according to the levels of dance. They were investigated, by the positive body image scale, the objectified body consciousness scale, and the body dissatisfaction scale. As a result of the study, there were significant differences in the female dancers’ body images according to their major and levels. There was a significant difference in their Objectified Body Consciousness according to the level of dance. There were no significant differences in their body dissatisfaction according to the major and level of dance.
