Dance Sport is part of the educational offer of Physical Education and Sports Department of the University of Bucharest, being one of the most popular sport disciplines among the students of this institution.
The number of physical education lessons provided in the curricula of the non profile faculties is 1/a week for the first two years of study, as optional subjects.
The approach of sports dance in physical education lessons involves the establishment of the themes which exclusively aim the initiation into this sport, with the compliance of all the teaching principles and the methodological requirements.
The dance lesson with students lasts 100 minutes, from which 25 minutes represent the first part of "general warming" with "harmonious physical development", which included the study of classical dance, while the themes from sports dance are allocated 60 minutes.
Regarding the training methods used to acquire the specific content of dance in physical education class, we mention that the verbal methods are doubled by the intuitive and practical methods, the teacher manifesting the autonomy in choosing and combining them.
Our practical experience of over 15 years in the field has demonstrated that acquiring the technical content specific to dance, in terms of exercising within a lesson per week, is done quite slow, reality that has led us to implement in our educational approach the benefits of the development of modern technology.
In this regard, we propose in the present work to emphasize the efficiency of using of a web application in the faster acquiring of the technical dancing figures by the students from the University of Bucharest, participating in physical education lessons (dance). We mention that the students from the experimental group had access (by supplying a password) to the application dansuri.site88.net which offer them, in the form of animations and some descriptive tables, the information about the technique learned at the practical lesson.
Also we specify that the above mentioned application was presented in another study which highlighted its importance in developing the dance technique, revealed by the interventions and the favorable opinions of the specialists in the sphere: coaches and athletes.
