Dig Deeper: The Effects of a Creative Dance and Movement Program on the Social Competence of Head Start Preschoolers
The effects of an eight-week instructional program in creative dance/movement on the social competence of preschool children were assessed in this study utilizing a scientifically rigorous design. Forty preschool children from a large Head Start program were randomly assigned to participate in either an experimental dance program or an attention control group. Teachers and parents, blind to the children's group membership, rated children's social competence both before and after the program, using English and Spanish versions of the Social Competence Behavior Evaluation: Preschool Edition. The results revealed significantly greater positive gains over time in the children's social competence for the experimental group compared with the control group. Small-group creative dance instruction appears to be an excellent mechanism for enhancing social competence and improving behavior. (edited for brevity)
