Regina Adriano Baligad, Jonar Tumali Martin

Abstract

It has been noted in recent research that motivation plays an important role in leisure activities such as dance. Currently, there are a significantly smaller number of boys in the dance world than girls and there are several aspects to dance that could contribute to boys’ and girls’ motivation to continue striving in the dance world. The purpose of this study is to analyse the motives of male and female students towards dancing. This descriptive research was participated by 261 (male=130, female 131; mean age=15.86) grade 10 students from 3 major public schools in Angeles City who answered the Motives for Dance Questionnaire. Result found out that emotional factor was the primary reason for dancing while social factor was the least. Females are more physically, emotionally, and artistically motivated. They are also more intrinsically and extrinsically motivated to dance compared to male respondents. Data showed that there was no significant difference in most of the motivational factors except for emotional factor. The result of the study may be used as basis for dance teachers in the promotion of dance participation among the youth.
