    Abstract

    The theoretical introduction includes a definition of dance, a review of the dance history as well as a definition of dance styles which are being taught by the teachers at schools. Since teachers are the leaders of the dance creative process, they should be familiar with the basic dance elements (body, space, time, energy), and know how to present them to the children in an appropriate manner. They should be familiar with the content of the dance in the curriculum in physical education, the principles of teaching, methods and forms of teaching how to dance. Since the dance has an overall meaning for the child's development it has been described and it has been pointed out at which stages of the development a child is in the time of the first and the second triad. In addition, the complexity of the concept of the competences has been explained, the competences that are gained by the teacher, while studying, were named, and it has been explained which competences for teaching the art of dance should be developed by the teachers. Teachers should be aware to include different dance styles into the physical education classes, not only the ones they are familiar with. The teaching profession is a profession which demands a lot of competences and a lifelong learning. That is why the empirical part includes a research on how much the teacher of the first cycle of the elementary school include dance into the physical education classes, and the competences of the teachers for teaching dance. The research was empirical - quantum approach was used. The data was gained with the help of a survey questionnaire, distributed among the first and the second cycle of the elementary school teachers at different schools. As expected, the results of the research have shown that the teachers do not dedicate a lot of physical education lessons to dance. A lot of them do not even know if they dedicate enough time to teaching dance. The research has also shown that the teachers do not feel competent enough to teach dance. Even though the teachers are aware of their knowledge deficit, they do not do anything to refresh, renew or upgrade their knowledge.
