This research aimed to identify the teaching methods most commonly used in three different undergraduate dance technique classes (ballet, jazz and contemporary). It also aimed to establish students’ responses to the different teaching methods/styles using participants from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. The teachers and students were observed by the researcher in the three different technique classes over a three week research period. Four teaching methods were identified prior to the investigation (command style 'didactic', individual practice, problem solving and guided discovery), the observations were noted down to enable data collection and analysis to take place. The findings showed that the didactic teaching method (command style) was the most commonly used across all three techniques, with the Jazz technique using the teaching method the most overall. It was also found that the students preferred the didactic teaching method. It was however, highlighted that further research is needed on the effectiveness of the teaching methods within the dance technique class and the effect it may have on the students’ ability to learn.
