«Peculiarities of the motivation of students attending in dancesport»
Dancers raise themselves a variety of tasks, and dance encouraged by different motives. For teachers who work with those people who want to learn sports dances, it's important to know their motives to attend dance classes, know how to promote them to achieve the desired result. It is important to investigate the expression of their motives, to reveal the specific peculiarities of motivation to create favorable conditions for their mastery improvement. Research aim – to investigate peculiarities of the motivation of students attending in dancesport. Using the questionnaire survey we investigated that students attending in dancesport expressed their intrinsic motivation to dance more than external motivation, students’ girls' intrinsic motivation was higher than that for boys. Students boys have higher external motivation than girls. They are more focused on consolidating their «ego». Low evaluations of «non-motivation» for girls and boys suggests that the choice of students to attend sports dances is based on a conscious decision to participate in learning process and satisfaction of the chosen activity.
