Abstract

Background and Study Aim. Choreographic exercises for the development of flexibility are a complex component of training students of the department of folk dance in the specialty "Choreography". Among such exercises are exercises of ballet gymnastics, which take into account the specifics of mobility of the joints. The aim of the study was to identify the level of general and special mobility (“en dehors”) in students who are engaged in choreography. Material and Methods. The study involved students (n = 20) of 1 year of study in the specialty "Choreography" (Faculty of Arts, Department of Folk Dance, H.S. Skovoroda Kharkiv National Pedagogical University, Ukraine). The duration of the study is 6 months: from January 2020 to June 2020. The curriculum provides the study of the discipline "Gymnastics in Choreography" (1st year of study, summer semester), a total of 3 credits (including 36 classroom hours). During distance learning (from 13.03.2020 to 31.05.20) students performed a set of exercises independently. Also through video conferences Zoom with a teacher - once a week, lasting 40 minutes. Results. It was found that students of the department of folk and stage choreography mostly have higher scores. This is due to the presence and complexity of acrobatic elements that are present in folk dances. During the study, there were more significant differences between the indicators in the groups. There was a noticeable development of active flexibility in the girls of the department of folk and stage choreography. Conclusions. The used test indicators are recommended to be used in classes as control standards. The use of the author's program will ensure the development and maintenance in the proper state of the achieved level of flexibility (“en dehors”). To do this, it is necessary to adhere to the regular use of exercises, taking into account the individual capabilities and abilities of students.
