Title: The reflections on using the mirror in a dancers training: researching the Effect
Synopsis:

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of the mirror on dancers’ use of proprioception. Proprioception (Sherrington, 1906) is the ability to sense stimuli arising within the body in regards to position, motion, and equilibrium. The mirror is used in dance education as an instant form of self-correction; however it may be a hindrance to the development of proprioception or natural internalization of movement. Professional,
recreational dancers and teachers between the ages of 18-55 from the tertiary level completed a 20-question survey, conducted interviews with industry professionals and completed studio observations detailing their experiences with and without the mirror during training. The sample size was 123 and included participants from Australia, Cambodia, China, England, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore and the United States of America. It was predicted that the results would show that the use of the mirror during dance training would have a negative effect on dancers’ use of proprioception.
