dance, sports performance, verbal feedback, video feedback


Research has shown that video feedback and verbal feedback can improve a variety of skills related to several sports. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of these two forms of feedback for improving dance skills. In this study, the dance skills of three participants were assessed. Verbal feedback and video feedback were implemented using a multiple baseline across participants with an embedded alternating treatments design to allow for a direct comparison of the interventions. The results indicated that verbal feedback was more effective for one participant and video feedback was more effective for one participant. More data is needed for the third participant to determine which intervention was more effective.
