    The main purpose of the diploma thesis was to research the differences in planning dance activities in kindergartens between urban and rural areas. We focused on possible differences in the frequency of planned dance activities. We wanted to discover, which dance activities are used the most and how much importance educators give to planning and executing of dance activities. The diploma thesis is divided into two parts – theoretical and empirical part. In the theoretical part we focused on dance as an activity in kindergarten. We presented dance as part of our national Curriculum for kindergartens. There is also described the role of the educators in planning and executing dance activities. We defined the types of the dance activities that are used in kindergartens and we described all methods and forms of work that we use for these types of activities. In the empirical part we presented the results of our research. The data was obtained through a questionnaries. We did our research in different kindergartens. In urban area we chose two kindergartens from Ljubljana – Vrtec Franceta Prešena and Vrtec Šentvid. In rural area we chose three kindergartens – Vrtec Mehurčki, Vrtec Murenčki and Marijin Vrtec. In our survey has participated 99 preschool teachers. For data processing we used Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. The data is displayed in tables and graphs. The final results showed that between urban and rural kindergartens there are no statistically significant differences in the frequency of planning dance activities. There were only shown some small differences. Most preschool teachers in urban kindergartens are planning dance activities, meanwhile preschool teachers from rural kindergartens are using dance as spontaneous activity.
