Abstract


The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of 8-week folk dance education on balance, reaction time and rhythm session of university students. A total of 40 students aged 19-23 years were included in the study. Participants were divided into two groups. 20 students of them were determined as control group. The other groups performed basic folk dance training was given to the students as ninety minutes three days a week. Age, height, weight, balance, visual and auditory reaction time and rhythm session were measured in groups one day before and one day after the study. Isokinetic balance test was performed for balance measurement. The normal distribution test of the data obtained from the study was carried out with Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Shapiro Wilk tests. The data showed normal distribution according to the groups (p> 0.05). Paired t test was used to compare the pre-test and post-test values of auditory reaction time, visual reaction time, api, body weight, osi and mlı. McNemar test was used to analyze the pre-test and post-test of correlation between rhythm perception and performing skill scale. Statistical results were evaluated at 95% confidence interval and p <0.05 significance level. It could be concluded that eight weeks folk dance education can improve the balance, reaction time and rhythm session and have positive effects of university students.
