Abstract

The aim of this study was to ascertain perceptions of strength training in dance from the viewpoint of the professional dancer, dance teacher and student dancers across dance genres.  A total of 168 responses (149=F, 19=M) to the modified Training Information Survey (TIS) were analysed for differences in perceptions of strength training. Some significant differences were found between professionals and teachers (p>0.05), and between students and teachers (p>0.001). It is evident that perceptions of strength training still vary across the dance sector and it is postulated that further education for dancers on strength training would break down barriers to participation.
