Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the level of satisfaction that gain the participants who involved in dancing activities, as well as if factors such as gender, age, and the participation in dance performance differentiate this satisfaction. Survey’s sample was consisted from 482 persons of older than 17 years old. All these persons came from 40 dancing associations throughout Greece. The Greek version (Filippou, Douka, Pitsi, Rokka & Filippou, 2017) of “Physical Activity Class Satisfaction Questionnaire” (PACSQ) (Cunningham, 2007) was used. The questionnaire consists from 45 questions (items) researching the nine parameters (factors) of satisfaction. The following statistical analyses were carried out: reliability analysis (Cronbach’s ?), descriptive statistics were calculated to broadly examine the degree of satisfaction, T-test for independent samples was used to examine if the gender and the participation in dance performance differences on satisfaction and One-way Analysis was conducted to indicate any differences in age (17-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60 & 60+) of the sample. From survey’s data’s analysis we have the opportunity to claim that the participants in dancing activities are interested in and they evaluate both the teacher as a personality and his lesson. At the same time, they care about the climate during the lesson and if that makes them happier and helps those to improve their dancing level. The result is positive, due to the fact that their level of satisfaction is high enough. In the end, the gender and the participation or not in dancing performances are satisfaction’s differentiator factors, while age is not one of them.
