The Development of Bodily - Kinesthetic Intelligence through Creative Dance for Preschool Students
Creative dance can confer important benefits on students of preschool age. The aim of this research was the implementation of a creative dance unit for preschoolers (five-year-olds) and the examination of its impact on the development of their bodily - kinesthetic intelligence. Because of the lack of previously established tests of bodily - kinesthetic intelligence, the goal of the present study is to offer new information about the evaluation of bodily - kinesthetic intelligence for students of pre-school age. Observation was made across three creative dance sessions in order to document any progress particularly in the expression and development of their bodily - kinesthetic intelligence. Data collection methods used within the study were: observation in classes, video recordings, photography and diary. By these means we arrived at the conclusion that these creative dance sessions gave pre-school children the opportunity to employ and develop their bodily - kinesthetic intelligence.
