Influence of dance fitness-programms on the physical preparation of the students in conditions of faculty lessons
Hryhoriy Skovoroda State Pedagogical University of Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky, Ukraine



To explore the impact of dance fitness programs on the physical training of the students in conditions of faculty lessons. In the research took part the students of the pedagogical faculty of Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky Hryhoriy Skovoroda State Pedagogical University. (n = 30). It was revealed the interest of scientists in solving the problem of integration of choreography in physical education, but we want to admit the lack of scientific methodological developments in this direction. Using of modern fitness programs in dancing direction (Aero dance, Bodi Balet, Belly Dance) in physical education of students in conditions of faculty lessons is offered. The results of the research showed significant changes in the indicators of physical training, physical health, theoretical preparedness, which had occurred during the pedagogical experiment. It has been found that indicators students' physical state of experimental group substantially changed: ChSS from indicator 82,5 b/m increased to 93,03; AP - from 120/70 to 130/90, body mass declined from 63,1 to 60,15 kg; tilt of the trunk forward from the sitting position t = 7,77 (p<0,05); shuttle running 4x9m t =4,82 (p<0,05); lifting the body in one minute t =4,15 (p<0,05). It is proved that using of modern fitness programs of the dancing direction (Aero dance, Bodi Balet, Belly Dance) in the context of faculty lessons is an effective way to optimize the physical education of the students in order to solve the problems of their physical and intellectual development in a comprehensive way, satisfaction of motor activity needs, and to form a sustainable motivation to the lessons of physical education.
