Amixed duo is stepping poorlybut passionately to the Latinmusic. Although they are notwell dressed as dancers, their enthusiasmshows. Spectators are watching themwith breathless attention. Their eyes arefollowing their partner’s motions.

As themusic reaches a crescendo the passionateduo perform their final flourish! This isnot a scene from a movie but a dancesports class at the University of Seoul.A dance sports class, one of theUOS Humanities’ requirements, takesplace every Tuesday from 4 pm to 6 pm.Though there are theoretical goals suchas ‘comprehension of dance sports andits development processes’ written inthe syllabus, this class mainly teachesdancing techniques. For this reason, alecture takes place in a dance room at thegym.

Students can experience taking aclass without desks or chairs.The professor who teaches the dancesports class this semester is Lee Jae-hee.She has been in charge of the dance lecturesince last semester.As previously stated, this class ismostly practical technique-centered.However there are lots of categories inthe dance sports.

First of all, dancesports could be divided into two broadcategories, Modern Dance and LatinDance. Each category has five details.First, modern dance has Waltz, Tango,Quickstep, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz.Meanwhile Latin dance has Rumba,Jive, Cha-Cha, Samba, Paso & Doble. “Ilectured Cha-Cha and Jive in Latindance last semester, so I am planning toteach Samba and Rumba this semester.”She started to talk about her plans.

“However that is just my plan. I willgive choices to students and lecture whatthey want.” It was impressive that sheconsiders students’` opinions in theprogress of the class.

Then how does the professor gradethe many students who take her course?Due to the nature of dance class, it isobviously difficult for the professor toestimate every student and give themgrades evidently or objectively.

“Whenstudents dance with their partner to themusic, I watch their motions and scoregrades based on standards.” ProfessorLee said but it was a slightly abstractanswer, so the standard of grades wasthe next question.

“Such as accuracy ofsteps, posture, teamwork with partnerand harmony with the music are representativestandards.”Covering dancesports class, it seemed thisclass is definitely interesting.I wondered if firsttime learners of dancesports could adapt to thisclass well.

“Even if itisn`t easy for most students,it is easier tomake friends here thanin other lectures”

HanJoo-hee, a student ofthe Dept. of Economicswho took a sportsdance course last semester toldNEWS@UOS.

The professor responded“In the first or second class of thesemester, everyone look confused andawkward. However everyone enjoysand participates before the finals.”

She added a few more encouragingwords to students. “It is more importantto have an easy and composed attitudewhile dancing than to struggle toenhance your dancing ability. Participateactively!”
