GARCIA-DANTAS, Ana; CARACUEL-TUBIO, José Carlos  and  PENALOZA-GOMEZ, Rafael. Formative Intervention with Dance Teachers and Motivational Influence in their Students. CPD [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.2, pp.9-20. ISSN 1989-5879.

An educational programme for teachers was designed with the aim to improve their students´ motivation. A sample consisting of five teachers from a dance conservatoire (experimental group n = 3, control group n = 2), and their respective students (N = 60) took part in this study. The behavior of the teachers was assessed using the adapted Coaching Behavior Assessment System (CBAS). The students´ motivation was assessed using the "Motivation questionnaire for dance students [Cuestionario de Motivación para Estudiantes de Danza]". Following the intervention, teachers and students in the experimental group were assessed using the instruments listed previously to observe any changes in motivation between pre and post test. Results showed significant differences in scales of CBAS and the questionnaires from pre to post test in the experimental group. The control group, however, did not display significant differences, thus suggesting the intervention was effective.
