Abstract [en]

Research show that dance historically has been viewed at as an activity belonging to the female PE culture. Although there has been co-education in PE since the early 80th, dance is still viewed at as a female activity. Dance is generally a more popular activity among girls in school, and dance as an activity is being characterized by heteronormativity. That is, to be seen as a ”normal” boy, you should not like to dance. Research shows that teacher´s previous experiences of dance effects the way that they teach. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate if there are any quantitative differences in the dance education based on the teacher’s sex. The results are based on a survey which reached a total of 68 teachers, among them 32 women and 36 men. The result of this study shows no significant differences in the dance education based on the teacher´s sex. Female and male teachers spent roughly the same time on teaching dance.
