Abstract: In Japanese traditional folk dances, movements from waist to spine, or waist and body axes, are especially important. It is difficult for dance beginners to be aware of how to move their waist and body axis practically for better performance and many of them did not know how to overcome such problems. In this study we divided the subject students into two groups: the students who practiced a folk dance by using CG and the students who practiced with a regular method. Afterwards, comparisons were made and the effect of the CG review practice was discussed. As a result, some progress was observed in the dance of both groups after two-month’ practice. The effectiveness of CG used in dance practice was discussed by comparing two groups. It was made clear that the visualization of body movements with CG enabled them to notice differences in waist movements, which could not be found in regular practice, and it led to the changes in their dance.
