Abstract

Differences between authoritative and authoritarian teaching styles on Competitive Ballroom Dance students were examined. Researchers observed beginner lessons and surveyed the instructors and students to determine the perceived quality of the lesson and performance at a major dance competition. Although authoritative teaching style tended to yield better performance scores than authoritarian, this difference was not statistically significant.
