Physical activity is an important factor for the growth and development of children and adolescents. Dance is a highly prevalent type of physical activity among adolescent girls. The study was conducted in order to investigate the effects of aerobic dance and traditional dance on cardiorespiratory endurance on female adolescents. 150 subjects were selected for the study and were divided into three groups of 50 each: the aerobic dance group, the traditional dance group and the control group. The experimental program of the aerobic dance and traditional dance lasted for a period of twelve weeks and it included sixty-minute training sessions three times a week. The dance training session of each workout lasted 40 minutes, and it involved high, low and moderate impact segments. The cardiorespiratory endurance was evaluated through the Harvard Step Test. The finding of this study showed that twelve weeks of aerobic dance and traditional dance training had significant effects on the cardiorespiratory endurance of the subjects in the experimental group.Pages: 30-32 | 265 Views 22 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
